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. 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 ------
According to the troops above, pretty darn far. Sending out care packs isn’t just a physical gift. It verifies the connection our deployed troops have with Americans at home, the nation of people they’re protecting—you and me.
We’re receiving so many care goods from people across the nation. And it’s only because of you all that we can continue to let our servicemen and women know that we’re with them. Donations help fund the shipment of Care Packages and goods to our servicemen. All together now!®
