"I wanted to write and say thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have received a bunch of care packages out here in Afghanistan from your organization. I can assure you that my guys and I all are putting it all to good use. What people like yourselves do on a daily basis to support the troops will never be forgotten. It is the support we need out here in this environment during the holidays. Once again thank you, I can't say it enough."
"First off I would like to thank everyone who participated in the donations of everything that I received in all the care packages I've received throughout the time I've been here in Japan. I would also like to thank all the children for the beautiful heart warming christmas cards. I'm doing great and having a wonderful time here in Okinawa and all the care packages are making it a whole lot better, not just for my brothers in arms who are here with me and going the same problems as me. Thank you for keeping smiles on our faces and reminding us what we're fighting for. "

      On behalf of B Co, 223rd MI BN (L) out of Mountain View. We thank you so            much for the care packages that you have provided for our team here in                  Afghanistan. It means a lot to us over here to know that the people back                  home are thinking of us. And while the holiday season will never be the                  same in Afghanistan as it is at home, your packages, letters and                              thoughtfulness has truly helped us to feel the holiday spirit. 
      We appreciate everything you do for us and our families back home. 

     Please extend our thanks to all the families and friends that volunteered.
     We are proud and honored to serve our great nation. Appreciate the love.
