We received 2 care packages on your behalf including the Keurig Coffee maker and the coffee cups from Subaru.  Together they have done a lot to increase our morale, seeing that coffee is the juice that gets us going in the morning. The tuna packets are a pleasant alternative for the days we are stuck with MRE’s.

We can’t begin to express our gratitude for all the thoughtful items you and your partners have sent us.  The fig bars go pretty quickly and the hygiene products are scooped up by people who need them within minutes.

We plan on having a cigar night later this week, I’ll be sure to include photos of the team enjoying them.

On behalf of the (team redacted) thank you!!!!    **Here I am pictured drinking coffee**

All are charging right now, will take pictures over the next couple of days of the products in use. Already have my first customer for the Venom heat/massage belt!   Thanks so much for the hook-up, this will be HUGE for keeping the Marines in tip-top form!  Dr. B

I just wanted to send you a quick reply on behalf of the men of team (redacted). Thanks for your support and encouragement, especially during the holiday season. The guys appreciated the goodies, they did not last long! Treats like those are difficult to come by in Africa! Thanks for all you and your organization does for soldiers. We are extremely glad for Americans like you, who go the extra mile to support the troops. Hoping you have a blessed new year. V/r Nick

All of you amazing people – I cannot thank you enough for the boxes filled with all of the great items, snacks, treats, peeps and much needed coffee!!

We had just come back on Christmas Day from a grueling 2-week mission and all the boxes were stacked up waiting for me. Without even opening the boxes, my crew began to smile, because they knew that there had to be something good inside. The Peeps were gone instantly followed by oreos…and then I could smell coffee brewing within 15 minutes. Candy Canes for everyone! The 16 of us grabbed what we needed and the boxes were empty pretty quickly.

Thank you ALL so much for being a part of a great organization…Adopt-a-Soldier Platoon, Inc.

I’m not sure you hear it very often, but what you do really does make a difference. I’m the only one from crew that lives in NJ, so when I get back in May, I will be sure to spread the word on the great work you do. Maybe I will be able to stop by with my husband and kids too! V/R, Yvonne
