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

From an Air Ambulance unit we support in the Middle East.  They sent these cool pictures with a note that included the following:

“There is one site in (location redacted) that is extremely austere. I actually forwarded two of your packages there and they were extremely grateful for them. We all appreciate your very high quality care packages, you definitely win the care package of the year award!”  Dave

“AaSP – this is our guys out here right after we did a 9/11 memorial wod.  that flag we held has been folded in the back of my plate carrier since I joined the army. It felt like a good occasion to bring it out for a picture. Again thank you for everything not just cause I’m getting goodies but I can see the morale on my men’s faces when they open the boxes. it means a lot especially since this is a first deployment for a lot of these guys. (this picture can be posted).”  Jared

“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. Receiving packages such as these really does break up the monotony and gives the Soldiers a taste of home that they do not receive here often. Your support makes a difference.  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!

We got two emails from the USS Bataan (LHD-5) – one on Saturday and one today:

“Tell the team thank you we just received a bunch of mail and we got 24 boxes. The crew is going to be so excited. I appreciate everyone and what you are doing. Thank you.”

“To you and your team awesome job. Most of the holdup is on our side we are a moving target while we are out operating and they are just trying to predict where we will be. We really appreciate what you all do.” V/r CMC

Thank you for reaching out. Myself and the rest of my team appreciated all the care packages that your organization blessed us with.
You are correct, the crew I was with and myself have all made it back safely to the US over this past weekend.

Thank you again for all the support. Sydney
