From the FRONT: 14 NOV

Holy crap, you all are busting your collective asses for us! Immense gratitude on behalf of the men and women within our Task Force. I will let you know when things start arriving, and I have to say that I am excited that the folks living in the dirt are definitely going to get a little something Christmas-y from the good ol’ USA. Nothing better than seeing an Operator smile huge with all the Copenhagen grains as he opens one of your boxes. BTW: guys like saving the cigars for victory or post-mission relaxation. Please let the crew know how much your efforts are appreciated. Stu


The new Flag is up! 12 Nov 2018

I wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for the tremendous honor that we had yesterday on Veteran’s Day.
(Our unit) was able to be present during the retiring of Old Glory and the dedication of the new flag here at the Craig Joint Theater Hospital. There was an official AF photographer there and your name was specifically mentioned during the ceremony.
That being said I would assume that they will forward you some pictures.

Know that what you are doing has such a positive impact on all of the Soldiers here.
We thank you for your continued support. Keep up the great work. Respectfully, Matt. 12 Nov 2018


FROM the FRONT: 6 Oct

I just want to shoot you a quick note. I have been meaning to do it for a while now. I just wanted to say thank you for your hard work putting these packages together. Your packages are what people want it’s not the same old bars of soap and foot powder (though when you need that stuff you do really need it). Me and the guys are now hooked on the Body Armor drinks and Fig bars. As soon as a box comes in they are gone immediately…lol. Of course they are consumed at a rate that is second only to the Oreos. In addition every now and again there are those cigars, they are a welcome treat. Please let all the vendors and those that work behind the scenes we really appreciate it and look forward to you boxes every time. Shawn.
