244th Expeditionary Combat Aviation BrigadeMy name is 1SG E. [  ] and I'm with the 244th ECAB HHC and currently deployed to Kuwait. I have been going through a lot of the boxes and cleaning up here and it seems you guys have been awesome in the past sending items here. I want to say thank you. I have a bunch of people separated at different locations across the theater. I don't know if you can still send any more packages but we are definitely low on soap and baby wipes. Of course we appreciate anything and if you need anything additional from me, please let me know.  Sincerely,1 SG E. [  ]

As the Battalion chaplain, I wanted to send a personal note of thanks for supporting our BN during the  last year. Your contributions helped lighten the load of our Soldiers and brought many a smile, something not easy to do when you are isolated. Thank you again.

Dear Supporter of the Dragon Slayers,

We work in a secret facility and it’s a no  phone or picture taking area. We really appreciate the support! It made many people’s day. Thank you!  I might be able to send better pictures with more people on a Saturday.  ~~ M [ ] , US ArmyWe work in a secret facility and it’s a no phone or picture taking area. We really appreciate the support!

International Waters, August 5, 2019 –

Dear Americans - Thank you so very much for the kind cards, supplies, and treats we received in your care packages here aboard my Navy ship while out to see for many months! The shipment was so generous I was able to share it with multiple friends onboard. Your thoughtfulness is definitely a great reminder of the precious family, friends, and patriots back home who love and support us while we are away in Asia and the Middle East. Please extend my thanks to all the folks young and old who help make this possible!! We all can't wait to come back home and see you. God bless, LTJG Blake [ ] USN
