Being in the Middle East can be a difficult challenge. Working long strenuous hours day after day. It can be easy to lose sight of what we are doing over here, however, do to all the support we get from the States, from churches, friends, and family, we can go on knowing that we are loved and appreciated. Thank you all for the support that you give, and know that it does not go unnoticed. God bless. ~~Michael ------/ET3/Navy, Fort Wayne, Ind.
I'm stationed in South Korea right now and I see all the videos and messages of americasupportsyou.mil and being away from family and friends it really helps me get though my time. I want to thank everyone who supports all the troops as we support our fellow brothers and sisters in the sandbox. Even if there isn't much that we can do even a simple message picks up the hope of everyone and may brighten their day. Thank You! ~~Sra Edmund -------, US Air Force, Edison, NJ
I love all the support and thank yous I get on a daily basis. I want to thank you too. Without you, my job would be much harder. I love all my fellow brothers and sisters in arms and all those that served and all those that stood by or raised a soldier. Stand Fast, Carry On, and OUT FRONT! Scouts Out! ~~Spc Chris ------, US Army Avation, Yorktown, Va.
I just want to express my gratitude to all those who show their support to all the soldiers serving. When I left for Iraq I was greatly touched by the people who showed up at the airport on our way overseas. I feel touched every time someone personally shows their support. I can't thank everyone enough. Even though I'm over in Iraq, I want to thank the soldiers who are out there every day risking their lives. I don't think they hear that enough from the soldiers that don't have a job that isn't as dangerous. I'm proud to be an American Soldier. ~~SPC ------, Army, Chicago, Ill.
Hello my fellow Texans, I just want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. I want to also thank my family and my church for their prayers and concern. I know without their support this job would b a lot harder. Again I thank you all for all the support. ~~Kevin -----, IT3/Navy, Brazoria
I am a 10-year active duty Airman in the middle of my third tour to the Desert. Saudi Arabia (2001), Kuwait (2004), and Iraq (2007). And it gets easier every time I deploy thanks to the endless sincere support we receive from those true Americans who beleive in what we are doing to ensure freedom for all generations after us the world over. I am a Vermont native who primarily grew up in the Brattleboro area, but bounced all around Windham county during much of that time. I love my country, but Love Vermont more than anything and am proud to serve and willing to die to preserve the Vermont way of life that I hold so dear. Thanks again for all your continued support and encouragement, it means more than you could ever know. ~~SSgt Michael E. -------, E-5/USAF, Brattleboro, Vt.
