We recently received a letter from a mother whose son, Timothy --, is currently deployed in Iraq. She wants to give her son a care package of beef jerky. She was looking around the Internet for ways to help. As a mom, she knows and feels, in a very personal way, the sacrifice of our hard working troops. She knows firsthand what a care package can do, how they can make a soldier's day, and improve morale.
contact us and let us know.Her son's unit, she said, is originally from South Carolina, and she provided us with an APO address to send the package. Here's her letter: I FOUND YOUR WEBSITE WHEN I GOOGLED SUPPORT FOR SOLDIERS. SO GLAD THERE ARE ORGANIZATION THAT HELP OUR TROOPS. DEEPLY APPRECIATE THE HELP AND SUPPORT OF ANY CARE PACKAGE. I KNOW THEY GIVE A SMILE AND MAKE THEIR DAY. THEY WORK LONG 12 HOURS DAYS AND ARE VERY DESERVING. THANKS AGAIN MOM There are many moms like this and helping their sons and daughters is what we do. Can you help? Please

Very few things we do give us more joy than hearing from our armed forces overseas, especially when we can provide them with help and support. Last time, we heard from the mother of a sailor deployed on the USS Jason Dunham. The mother told us that our care packages reached her daughter on the ship.
