Letter Writing

Testimonial Highlights

You give us a piece of the home we are away from. Thank you so much to all of you who take time from your life to send us these things. Especially when we get cards and letters from school children. It’s a reminder of why I do what I do.

There is a place in Operation Gratitude for everyone to feel wanted, to pay it forward or say thank you regardless of age or physical limitations.

Writing a letter is a meaningful way for Americans to say “Thank You” support for all who serve. It only takes five minutes of your day but will bring lasting joy to the recipients. Operation Gratitude includes handwritten letters in every Care Package sent to Military and First Responders. In these unprecedented times, our heroes need our unwavering support. Taking the time to put pen to paper and share your heartfelt thoughts can be what motivates a First Responder or a service member.
