Dear Operation Gratitude,
On behalf of the Medical Department on the USS **** (based out of *** ,CA) I want to extend our sincerest thanks for the care packages and encouraging words. Being away from home during the holidays certainly is not easy, but your packages definitely made our holidays brighter. It means a lot to us knowing we have your support while we are deployed. Please extend this email to the volunteers that helped in the Armory in Van Nuys, CA and especially thankful to the H Family from ****, CA. I received a heartfelt card filled with beautiful words of support and encouragement from them that I will take with me back to the States to treasure for years to come. We wish you lots of good cheer and many blessings for you and your loved ones during this holiday season! Thanks again!
