“Mrs. Casey and all parties involved, Thank you for the Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon packages! The Soldiers of Apache Company 2-87IN 10th Mountain Division loved the snacks, letters, cigars, Knick knacks etc. that we received today at our mission support site.

Very Respectfully, Forrest”
“Thank you soo so much please extend our gratitude! The smiles on the Soldiers faces here when we get snacks and care packages is awesome!! These boxes are some of the best I’ve ever seen, Alan and the team are very appreciated!”
How cool is this? From our Adoptee in a very dangerous part of the world right now. Just look at the smiles on their faces! That’s why we love doing what we do!!! Merica!
