Their words of support and encouragement absolutely hit the spot

Hello,

Received this awesome care package from you, ​O​peration ​Gra​titude, today. It was so nice to read all the cards and letters from our communities back home. Their words of support and encouragement absolutely hit the spot. All the goodies inside also really made this day special. THANK YOU so much . Z.P.

Everytime we get a gift from home it brightens our mood and lifts our spirits

Thank you very much for the package!
Its been tough being away from home over the holidays, but everytime we get a gift from home it brightens our mood and lifts our spirits. Thank you D. for the beautiful handmade hat and the Blessing on top! It’s comfortable and warm! Strangely enough, I have a childhood friend whose sister just gave birth. This new mommy was diagnosed with a terminal brain cancer and she is only 17. Her name is D also, and we made a donation to her Go Fund me account hours before I got the hat. May God bless you as well, stay safe.

It is programs like these that help form the backbone of our country

Dear Operation Gratitude,

I am stationed at Naval Hospital **** and currently deployed in Afghanistan at the NATO Role 3 Multinational Medical Unit. We take care of Coalition and American Sailors, Soldiers, Marines and Airmen who are injured in combat. We work closely with Army providers and medics to provide outstanding care to the injured.

​WE have received multiple packages to our entire Medical Unit and I wanted to express my appreciation. Probably the most popular items are the knit scarfs and hats, the head shaving kits and especially (for those of us who like Star Wars) The Star Wars model heads. People are trading and collecting the 4 different pairs of models we have received. Over the last several weeks I have been able to barter and get all 4 by trading with my colleagues.

One of my colleagues loves the knit skull cap he received, where he sleeps at night is next to a wall and it gets very cold here at night during the winter so he wears it every night to keep is head warm.

Don’t worry, we are also sharing all of these gifts with our patients as well.

It is great to know that people back home have our deployed Sailors, Soldiers, Marines and Airmen on their mind and wish us well, particularly those who go into harms way. It is programs like these that help form the backbone of our country. Thank you for what you do.

Very Respectfully,

CDR M.T.

Spirits were at an all-time high as Soldiers opened their care packages, shared the cards and letters and swapped snacks and gifts from the boxes

Dear Bob & Rena,

Happy New Year and greetings from overseas. I wanted to take a moment today to respond to your card I received in one of the nearly 400 care packages our Task Force received yesterday. We arrived here prior to the holidays so spirits were at an all-time high as Soldiers opened their care packages, shared the cards and letters and swapped snacks and gifts from the boxes. I want to personally thank you for taking the time to share your blessings with us and on behalf of the more than 600 Soldiers assigned to Task Force Liberty thank you for your support.

Regards,
J.R.

I love the scarf that was hand-made and I really got a kick out of the Star Wars items

Good Morning!

I received your package today and I wanted to say Thank You very much! It was very much appreciated!

I love the scarf that was hand-made and I really got a kick out of the Star Wars items. A lot of thought went into this box and it was noticed.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. Your support means the world to us.

Respectfully,

Everyone enjoyed the snacks, but they really loved the beanies!

Thanks for the packages we received over the holiday. Unfortunately several of the Soldiers were pushed to a different base, but we spread the love to other units here with us. Everyone enjoyed the snacks, but they really loved the beanies! The beanies were useful because the cold weather started to set in around that time. I am sorry we don’t have pictures due to policies, but I promise your support is not done in vain. Keep up the support.

Thanks again,

C.D.H.
