On 29 August we had a special Memorial Gold Star pack in honor of our Fallen. A Gold Star wife and son were a huge part of the event and the 7-yr-old, Ryan, made a note for each box and helped pack. This is a response from one of our Adoptees:
On Sep 5th 2018, we here at USS Harry S. Truman CVN 75 received one of your care packages on behalf of Christine and Ryan Lemm. We read the letter that Ryan had made, and it touched all our hearts on board this great vessel. We all here on HST greatly appreciate the work that Adopt-a-Soldier does for our Vets. All our thoughts and prayers are with all the wounded warriors that this great organization does. The contents were very delicious, but the letter from Ryan and the pamphlet that came with it help make what we do, the sacrifices we make, all worth it. Keep up the great work that you do.
Very Respectfully, Robert
