“We received the additional coffee machines and the 3 x TRX systems! We will get you pictures of the team using them before the week is out – recent events out here have consumed us and I wanted to make sure I followed up that we absolutely appreciate you and the team’s generosity and support for us. I cannot thank you enough. Stand by for some action shots in the coming days. All the best – Nick”

“I would like to thank you for your continued generosity sending care packages to the Soldiers of (name/location redacted). It seems the longer we have been deployed the more Soldiers look forward to mail call – particularly because of care packages from your organization and others like it. I cannot emphasis enough how much of a morale booster it is when the unit receive care packages.
It is a highlight for me as a leader to let Soldiers know we have received care packages and see the excitement.
Thank you again for all you are doing to support us! Very Respectfully, Spencer “

“Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon Volunteers and Sponsors,
My Soldiers and I would like to thank you for your generous donation of gifts and time to send us care packages. We greatly appreciate the packages, as our current location is austere, and we have limited access to many familiar American products. Mail day is a high point for all our Soldiers, because – even if a Soldier is not getting a package or letter from friends or family – they know there will be a few care packages from your organization and others like it for their company.
As a commander, it is great to see the joy brought by these packages to my Soldiers. Whenever I notify my Soldiers that a care package has arrived from Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon, my Soldiers immediately swarm the company to see what gifts and treats have come in and the box is empty within ten minutes. Attached are pictures of many of my Soldiers after distributing out the treats, gifts, and hygiene products.
Thank you again for your continued support of our Soldiers, the United States Army, and our Nation. Very Respectfully, CPT P”

“Thank you for the care package that we received; morale is at an all-time high. The various snacks and other items have helped to keep spirits high while accomplishing our mission. It makes the soldiers remember home while we are gone for this long period and helps ease the constant worry of loved ones. It shows us that there are many people who still support us in our endeavors. Also, it gives us a reason to continue going forward knowing that we have an outstanding support group to lend a helping hand when needed. Mail is rather slow here so getting these packages from time to time gives us something to look forward too. So from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you so very much and we will continue to make America proud in everything we do. Sincerely, Your American Soldiers”

“Great hearing from you! Chaplain (name redacted) runs a fantastic “respite” that doubles as our chapel – the team enjoys your care packages and the new Keurig while relaxing when they are not on missions. We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and care for Soldiers – its goes further than words can explain.

I think the Keurig’s go a long way as it serves many purposes out here for the team – coffee, tea, *quick bowl of hot oatmeal, etc… you can send to me and (name redacted) and I will ensure those who could use one in a command post or living area will get it – you’ll get the pictures of them with it and a thank you to the team!

Thanks again and tell those Liberty Subaru fellas I say hello!”

“Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and generosity! We are so blessed to have the use of the Keurig and the KCups you’ve sent. You may have heard that the Infantry runs on caffeine and we go through coffee like crazy. The Keurig makes it a little quicker than brewing a full pot when people are in a rush; we have it set up in our chapel so it gets used before/after chapel service on Sundays, as well as during our weekly Bible studies, other meetings that we host throughout the week, and as people rush in and out throughout the day. Thanks for expanding our work here and supporting us on deployment. We are infinitely grateful.

I stuck a thank-you card in the mail the last time our mail team was here, which probably won’t arrive for another month, but thanks again for your support! We also appreciate the little toy cars and the notebooks, which get snatched up quickly.”
Chaplain R.

I wanted to reach out again and just thank you. It was incredibly generous of you to bring cheer to these hungry paratroopers out in the field! They were tired and hungry and my husband said that their eyes “lit up” when they realized that they were getting Girl Scout cookies! He had them take some photos for you before passing them out and sharing them with everyone. There is another Troop out there with them so they also shared the love. I’ll attach the photos and as he sends me more, I’ll pass them along! They were exhausted, so don’t mind some of the silly pictures 🙂 God bless you all! You have no idea how much this was needed and appreciated. Paulina
