...the purpose of this email is to extend a profound and sincere thanks and a heartfelt sense of gratitude to all of you for your very kind and selfless gesture.  We recently received upwards of 15 chockfull care packages, carefully and affectionately filled with some of the most thoughtful items I have seen in countless deployments  From the satiable trail mix and Easter candy, to the warm socks, t-shirts, and hand warmers, all were super well received by everyone in the detachment.  Thank you for everything you guys do to keep the morale of deployed troops as high as it can possibly be when away from family. Your packages certainly make it easier to deal with and lend themselves to bring huge smiles to everyone that receives one.  Please continue to do what you do and trust that your work is extremely uplifting.
