“HI,  What an amazing group of people who donate their time and resources. It’s reassuring to know that people still care about deployed soldiers.  I’m from Bergen County so it’s extra special to receive treats from NJ companies and Adopt-a Soldier Platoon.  Your packages are truly packed with everything a Soldier could ever need while […]

Good evening from Djibouti,  I am attaching photos of the trees that we placed in our lobby of the Headquarters building, only location a camera could go.  There were numerous cards sent to the troops so they decided to decorate the trees with the cards so all could stop and read. Thank you again for […]

From the FRONT: 13 Oct

We just got this heart-felt, wonderful thank you from one of our 2-87 Units:
Honorary Members of the (unit name redacted) Family,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the care packages that we received today! The amount of effort and people that it takes to get these to us is inspiring and endearing, we are more appreciative of your efforts than a simple email can convey. I hope to send you some pictures in the near future after we distribute the goodies to our Soldiers. Something as simple as a fig bar or a Hershey’s bar goes a long way for our Soldiers here, bringing them a small change of pace and reminder of home. Thank you again and please let me know if you need anything from my team or me here!    Very Respectfully,  Maxwell
