The last letter we posted was from a member of the armed forces stationed in Europe. This particular individual wanted to express thanks for him and his fellow soldiers, for a donation we provided. Letters from soldiers expressing gratitude for the care packages and donations we send them do come in from time to time, and we're always happy to share them. Today, we have something a little different.

Middle East, 10-3-2015-

Dear Sir or Ma'am,I would like to extend my deepest thanks to SupportOurTroops.Org, and if you could please pass on my unit's regards to everyone who makes your organization's day to day operations possible. I am very grateful that a group like yours exists and is able to make the impact you do in helping units out often unknowing.

I would like to thank all the people who have shown their support of the troops and the military. I can't help but cry reading all the messages from the American public. I'm not deployed currently but face a possible deployment next year with my husband in the Indiana Army National Guard. We will be leaving behind our two young children and I know that reading these messages of support will help me a lot. Thank you. ~~SPC Angela -------, Ft. Bragg, NC, Ind.

Kandahar, 11-30-2015:  Thank you very much for the boxes you sent to the NATO Role 3 hospital at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. The hospital is staffed by US Navy personnel stationed across the globe--from Guam to my own duty station at Bethesda, MD--and provides trauma center coverage for all of southern Afghanistan.

Thank you all!!! The support that I have seen around the country and in my home state makes me proud to serve. It means a lot to get a letter from your family but to get a card, a package, or just a simple note from a school kid to let us know they care even when they don't know us, that is a gift that touches deep. May God bless your families and friends. ~~Sgt. Joseph J. ------, US Army, Beebe, AR, Ga.

Happy New Year, we wanted to say thank you again for everything the men here are super excited for all of your support. We love you guys.. Keep us in your hearts.  ~~ SFC Wesley ----

Being in the Middle East can be a difficult challenge. Working long strenuous hours day after day. It can be easy to lose sight of what we are doing over here, however, do to all the support we get from the States, from churches, friends, and family, we can go on knowing that we are loved and appreciated. Thank you all for the support that you give, and know that it does not go unnoticed. God bless. ~~Michael ------/ET3/Navy, Fort Wayne, Ind.
