"To all the thoughtful caring people who pack and provide all the reminders of home.
Thank you from all the soldiers from 2-198 CAB."
"Thank you, I enjoyed the cereal, they came in handy for a quick snack of energy. I shared the Texas Pete with others in the unit. They loved it and were excited to have a taste of Texas." ~ SSG Jenkins 719th MDUS

"This is my third deployment and it seems that support from the home front has dwindled. It's refreshing to see that there are still groups like these to support us. Again, thank you."
"I was in a long mission and I just got back to find 3 boxes sent thru this program. I haven't got the opportunity to thank each one of the volunteers for their support but I will. Thank you very much for your support; it honestly makes this deployment a bit better, especially during this holiday season. I hope everything is good back home :)"
work with, and they thank you for sending them. I am the Executive Officer for a Combat Engineer Company located in Nangarhar, Afghanistan. We are part of the Army out of Fort Carson, Colorado. I am originally from New York, but reside in Colorado with my Fiance. I do like sports. I am a college football fan....Army, UVA, or Boston College are the teams I rout for and watch. I wear T-shirts and am a size Large. Thank you again for your kindness and thoughts."
"Thanks for the support while I was over there, and thank everyone else that does what they do to support us while we are deployed. It truly makes a difference receiving the packages, cards, pictures, and letters written by children. It makes what we do that much more important to know that we have the support. You guys provide a valuable service to all service members. I arrived home from Afghanistan a few weeks ago. It was an exciting and interesting experience that I will never forget. Many Afghans appreciate what we are doing to assist them, and many do not. I am fortunate to have made it home un-harmed, as many that I worked with did not. I am actually trying to do another tour in the near future, but don't know if the Navy will allow me."
"Thank you for what you are doing. My mom says thanks as well." ~ Stephen Stiles
"Thank you for all you do to help support the troops. Every little thing regardless of size can truly make a difference in someone's life."
"I am part of the unit ministry team. We are getting support for the soldiers here so that they feel that "support" from back home that they don't always feel. Some of these guys don't have strong family ties so we want them to feel appreciated. Thank you for your care and support."
"Thank you so much for your support!"
"THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!"
"My husband along with some other soldiers has been sent to a remote location where they live in a tent and have nothing. They don't have any kind of store or anything. I love my husband with all my heart and I want him to know that he will still be taken care of. We have not forgotten them."

"THANKS FOR ALL THAT YOU DO."
"Thank you so much for all you do for us Soldiers!"
"I appreciate whatever you send and my requests are to help those here who may not get anything. So my request comes with the deepest gratitude for your time and effort to support those away from the comforts of home. Thank you for extending your time to us."
"Thank you so much for supporting us, while we are away from our loved ones."
"I really appreciate all the help that you can give to myself and other soldiers. It really means a lot to us when we receive things from home and from people that still appreciate what we are doing overseas. Thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart."
"First of all, thanks for lookin out for us over here. We get pretty bored when not out on missions. It means so much to us to get mail and even more getting things that remind us of what life was like back home before we left. I've been photographing a lot of Afghanistan since I got here and would love to share my experience with you guys, if you'd like. Thanks for all you do to keep us in the fight!"
"This means a lot to us that there are people willing to support us that don't even know who we are. It really makes us proud to do what we do."
"WE APPRECIATE ALL THAT YOU GUYS AND GALS DO FOR THE TROOPS. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!"
