Thank you letter from Kuwait Supportourtroops.org

Kuwait, July 28, 2017: Support Our Troops Team and Janet, I wanted to let you know that we've received tremendous support from your team in the form of care packages over the last several weeks. We feel truly blessed here. Your efforts have made an impact on each and every one of our team members, Military and Civilian, and it has brought a touch of home to them.

On behalf of our team, a huge thank you and we can't say enough how much it means to us. All the packages made it here safely and everything is being put to good use! We love it. We also really enjoyed all the personal notes that are within the packages and are writing back to those who wrote/crafted them. Please find attached a few photos of our team and I will also upload them to the Support Our Troops link! Once we get a printed version of the photos, we will mail your way with a token to express our sincere thanks.
V/R, Jeffrey -----, Capt, USAF (JSSD-K)

April 16, 20017 - GARUOA, Cameroon - Easter has always been a special holiday where friends and family gather and enjoy one another's company. The holiday had a different meaning this year for Soldiers of Able Company, 1st Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, who are currently deployed to Cameroon from their home station at Fort Stewart, Georgia.

This year the men not only shared the holiday with their fellow Soldiers, but also with their hosts and partners. The Cameroonian Air Force hosted Able Company Soldiers for a large brunch the Saturday before Easter. The event was organized by Cameroonian Air Force Col. Barthelmy T'Silla, commander of the Cameroonian Air Base hosting the Soldiers.
"This is not only a time to celebrate Easter," said T'Silla. "It is also a time to come together and celebrate the sacrifices of [our] nations."
Local restaurant owners and residents of the base brought in home-cooked regional delicacies. Soldiers filled their plates from the buffet with foods like home-made donuts, kebabs, fresh fruit and other local fare.
