CAMP ARIFJAN, KUWAIT, June 25, 2017 – Greetings from Camp Arifjan, Kuwait and from the Soldiers of the 978th CSC, We are writing this message as a personal thank you and as a sign of our appreciation. We want to personally thank you for the tremendous amount of support that your organization gives us. We especially want to thank you for the wonderful care package that your organization of civilians sent our unit.
Kuwait – May 22, 2017, I just want to say thank you for them bottom of my heart! Thank you all for everything you all do. I shared the box with my Soldiers and they were so thrilled and felt loved. The look on their eyes.... there is no words that describe that feeling. I truly appreciate everything and may God continue to bless you and your families. The letter from the kid Ariel that was sent in the box was kind and very heart felt.
