support-our-troops-org-Thank you from the 380th Air Expeditionary WingSW Asia, May 28, 2016 - We have received a lot of your packages - thank you so much for sending them! We can never express how thankful we all are here to have people like you back home thinking of us! Thank you again so much - please pass along our appreciation to all of those who have helped you and donated to your organization!
~~ MSgt Matt ----

About the 380th Established in Southwest Asia in January 2002, the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing is home to approximately 3,000 personnel completing one of the most diverse combat wings in the Air Force. The wing is comprised of 4 groups and 16 squadrons. Its mission partners include an Army air defense battalion and a Navy aerial maritime surveillance detachment.

So how far does a simple box of toiletries, treats, and a kind note really go?

OCONUS, May 15, 2016 -  We just received 5 packages from you and we wanted to give our thanks to the men, women, and children that took the time in sending these packages to us.

OCONUS, May 15, 2016 - We just received 5 packages from you and we wanted to give our thanks to the men, women, and children that took the time in sending these packages to us. We were over whelmed as we opened each box and distributed the contents throughout the Soldiers in our unit/team. We all found it very hard to come up with the words that could describe the gratitude and thankfulness that we all experienced in receiving the gifts. It is because of concerned citizens such as yourself that we continue to serve and protect our great Nation, the United States of America. The love and generosity you have shown us will stay with us for our remaining time of deployment, and even for many years after our re-deployment. The picture I am sending was taken back in November of 2015. Since then, we have grown in numbers and some have changed out with other members of the service. We will be sending an updated photo in the near future. God Bless each and every one of you, God Bless our Families, and God Bless the Greatest Nation on the face of the earth, the United States of America! ~~ SGM Seann ------

2nd Brigade Combat Team in Kandahar Thanks Americans

us army soldiers prepare parachute jumpus army soldiers prepare parachute jumpKandahar, Afghanistan –

Hey Support Our Troops – this is Captain Marc —– 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, in Kandahar, Afghanistan. I‘m writing this to express sincere appreciation from all the members of the Afghanistan National Security Forces Advise and Assist Team.

The Team is comprised of soldiers from the 10th Mountain Division’s Second Brigade Combat Team. The team deployed with the mission to make Afghanistan a self-reliant nation — for the safety of America. We work hand in hand with Afghan locals and service members on a daily basis, to make the Afghanistan National Security Forces ready to defend the freedoms of their citizens.

Our team has received great material goods from Support Our Troops, and the items received have really increased morale. Some of the items used daily include Under-Armor athletic apparel, soccer balls, shaving cream, and protein supplements. Of note, the soccer balls have been used for soccer practice many times a week as our team prepared for a game against the Afghanistan Uniformed Police.

The police took a victory on the soccer field, but lasting relationships were formed between us and the Afghanistan police, and these relationships have built the trust and confidence needed for mission success. Know that the effort and equipment Support Our Troops provided is appreciated by all team members, and that Support Our Troops directly aided in the national mission.

The enclosed flag was flown for you on a combat mission on an M-rap. Due to all the support you have provided, please accept this flag as a small token of appreciation for all the backing Americans have provided our service members and our team through Support Our Troops!

~~Sincerely, Captain Marc —
– 2nd Brigade Combat Team

Christmas Morning Care Packages, Somewhere in Afghanistan

Afghanistan, December 26, 2014 - Dear Supporters, On December 24th we received your care packages full of personal hygiene items, coffee, candies, Underarmour shirts and iPads! What fantastic gifts just hours before Christmas day. The Christmas morning was celebrated with an 8 mile Jingle Bell Ruck in honor of our fallen heroes, SFC Mike Cathcart and SSG Matt Ammerman. We had 25 participants and everyone received an Under Armour T-shirt that you sent over. Each one of the Soldiers plays a special role in our mission either as a Support Soldier, or as a Special Forces Soldiers. All were extremely grateful to rummage through the care packages and to receive a T-shirt! (I also gave one to the Commander, XO and CSM of our unit!)
