You are here Community Thanks FROM the troops

Thanks from the Troops

I would like to send you the thank yous from the whole D Co 1-130th ARB for the box you sent to us. It was a very uplifting gift in these times.  We deeply appreciate your support as we carry on our mission. Recent events such the failed attempt against our nation in Detroit remind us that we do serve a purpose in these often uncertain times. Once again, thank you much for your support. ~~ SPC Christian ----, Basrah, Iraq
Thank you for showing your support. It means a lot especially to those of us who are overseas right now. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers. God bless America. ~~Charlene ------SPC/Army national guard, Palm Bay, Fla.
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. We appreciate all you do for us. Thank you again. ~~PFC James ------, Derby, Kan.
Thank you all for your ongoing support for our troops across the world. God bless you all. ~~TSgt Charles ------, USAF, Tampa, Fla.
I just wanted to tell everyone back home thank you.... Thank you for your support and for caring about me and my brothers and sisters out here. Everyday I see packages arrive for someone and I know that package is warmimg someone's heart and re-energizing them for whatever mission comes down to us. Thank you so much. Thank you again. and to my family, I love you and miss you so much! ~~SPC Jodie ------, Army, North East, Pa.
Thank you all for the outstanding messages/prayers/letters. It really helps us press on with the good work we are doing here in Afghanistan. The Afghan National Police Medical Embedded Transition Team members really appreciate it. Thanks again. ~~Maj Ted ------, USAF, MSC, Seabrook, N.H.
I would just like to thank each and every one one of you for your endless letter, care packages to all of us in the service. I will be heading over to Iraq for the 5th time. Right now, I'm stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Everytime I come back home from a deployment, as I walk through the airports and people clap and shake my hand, it gives me a sense of accomplishment, knowing that I'm doing what I can to protect this great country and all of my fellow Americans. Again thank you all and God Bless! ~~Rock -------, SrA, USAF, SLC
Being deployed to Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, is made easlier with the help from the people back home. With you we could not do our jobs. From our kids to brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers and even grandparents, thank you very much from the bottom of our heart! THANK YOU! ~~PV2 ------ USA, Louisville, Ky.
Being a SrA in the AF currently serving in Kunsan AB, Korea, I would just like to personally thank you for bringing this website together. During the holidays, we had to work which helped us get through the days, but we made time each holiday to log on and read the messages left...what an amazing way to lift our spirits. So again, thank you from Kunsan AB! We are definitely proud to serve you! ~~ SrA Jennifer ------
I would like to thank all those who pledge their support to service members and our great country. Your support will never go unnoticed. I would also like to thank all the vets. Your service to our country will always be remembered! ~~SSG, US Army, Hoover, Ala.
Just want to say that all the support that you give is great. It helps a lot to know we have the support of the country we fight for no matter the reason. ~~Robert ------- SGT U.S ARMY, Osawatomie, Kan.
Thanks For all you do! Keep up the good work, because of you it makes the days we are deployed so much easier! Thanks Agian! ~~PV2 ------, US Army, Harnett County, N.C.
I wanted to reply to all the people of Rhode Island who added their heartfelt thoughts and prays to this site. I really do appreciate it. I wish I could thank each and every one of you for it. I have been deployed overseas 10 times and 6 times since 2001. It helps greatly knowing that we have so much love and support from the American People. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! ~~ABF1 Marshall ------- US Navy, Cranston, R.I.
I would just like to tell America, thank you for all of your support and love you give us. All of the care packages, letters and everything, it keeps our heads up and lets us know just who we are fighting for -- all of YOU. It's no wonder why I'd give the ultimate sacrifice to keep our great country free and safe. Everytime I come back from Iraq, I get applause, hand shakes, smiles, cheers, pats on the back and thank yous. It makes me feel good, knowing that I'm doing my part in protecting this great country. Again, Thank You all! Take Care and God Bless! ~~SrA Rock ------, SLC
On the morning of Thanksgiving we were all a little down. Then later that day, we received your boxes. I can't begin to tell you the gratitude we all felt and the smiles that it put on the faces of all the soldiers here. But the thing that touched us the most wasn't the content of the boxes. The thing we were most proud of and what touched us all the most was the enclosed card with a picture off all the great Americans there waving and smiling at us. The entire mood changed and our Thanksgiving was Thanksgiving again. We all ate 'Army Food' for Thanksgiving and talked about everything you guys sent, but again the talk kept going back to the card and the obvious support and love and care that your group sent. We noticed young, old, disabled, moms, dads, sons, and daughters. And we could also pick out the ones that have even served themselves, they just have that look!! Please tell all of them from the bottom of the heart of many soldiers located in an isolated forward operating base in Iraq, we received their gratitude on Thanksgiving day when we needed it the most. We may be serving here in Iraq but you guys are the Heroes. Thank You Again with the deepest Respect. ~~Major K.O.
I just received your package. I wanted to take this time to thank you for your thoughts, and more importantly your time. We are doing a job that our country has called us to do and you are making that job easier. I am not much of a 'candy man.' However, I wanted you to know that I put it to good use. Today, on mission, I took the candy and gave it to as many children as I saw. You cannot imagine the smiles of these kids who have nothing and surely have never had candy. My heart nearly melted completely, when a little girl from Kirkuk blew me a kiss and said thank you! It is the little things in life that make the difference. Keep up the work and know that it is making a difference! Thanks again! ~~Specialist B.Q.
Thank you everyone for your support. All the soldiers greatly appreciate the things you do, including myself who is currently in Mosul, Iraq. ~~SPC Nathan ------ Army, Hot Springs, Ark.
I would just like to thank each and every one of you who show support day in and day out. It's really nice to hear from all of you. Everytime I deploy and I return, as I walk through the airport, I get thanks and handshakes from complete strangers. It brings a tear to my eye, knowing that people who I don't know would thank me for just doing my job. ~~Rock ------, SrA, USAF, Clovis, N.M.
I would like to say thank you very much for all your support and praise. If it wasn't for the GREAT citizens of the great state of Oklahoma, I wouldn't know what I would do. Keep the home fires burning. ~~SGT ------ ARMY, Mounds, Okla.
My Soldiers and I just recieved your 'Operation Gratitude' care packages. I can't explain how grateful we all are and how it changed our Christmas. We were in the middle of moving from one camp to another. We arrived here on Dec. 22 and had absolutley no communications during Christmas day to call back home. but on Christmas Eve, my soldiers received your care packages and they all had a smile from ear to ear. I could see that the packages made their Christmas complete. The items you pack in there are above and beyond. To all of you at Operation Gratitude on behalf of my unit, I want to Thank You for everything you do for us. You keep us going and give us the reason and purpose of why we are here: to fight for the freedom of great Americans like all of you at Operation Gratitude. ~~Sergeant First Class J.M.
I would first like to thank God for giving me the opportunity to serve this great country. I would like to thank my parents Jeff and Lucy Richards from Dalton, OH. I would like to thank my wife and children in California. I would finally like to thank all of you who care and take time out of your busy schedule to support our troops and sailors especially during the holiday period as we spend it away from our loved ones. Please take time to think about us out here on the waters. ~~Michael Jeffrey ------ Operation Specialist Chief, US Navy, Cleveland
Hello, Wow, we received all the boxes today, are you kidding me! I have never seen such support on all my previous deployments combined. I will be sure to take pictures of our guys on Christmas Day. Thank you so much for taking care of our soldiers. Wow, the gifts are all incredible and I am truly in admiration of the support for our heroes.Thank you 1000 times over! ~~1SG Jonathan ------/66th Engineer Company 2-25ID
Letter sent to homefront group (Soldiers' Mothers): I can't begin to express my gratitude for your sending all of those gifts to us this year. We received them all and have spent the last two days getting them out to the companies for their parties next week. We will be getting pictures for you. I am rolling out tomorrow to spend Christmas with a part of my unit that is away from the headquarters. The bathtub box was wonderful! You don't know how long I have been wanting that exact book, but haven't gotten it for one reason or another. It was truly a soldier's wish come true. Thank you--the comic books were wonderful as well. I am taking some with me on my trip this week. I hope to have some time to rest. The commander mentioned 'A Soldier's Wish List' today during a Radio Interview back with the American Radio in Germany. He is very excited. Thank you again for all of the work that you've done. I can't wait to send you some pictures. We are excited that everybody will get a present this year. ~~Chaplain Keith ------/Army
