Iraq, May 18, 2011: "Hello Patriots! I am the HHC Commander of the 77th Sustainment Brigade. Our unit is currently deployed to Iraq. We have around 300 Soldiers currently deployed. The Soldiers in the Liberty Unit are from all over the United States, but are primarily from New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The 77th is a logistics unit charged with a very important role in the responsible drawdown in Iraq. The Soldiers are great Americans! We thank you for all that you have done for us in the past and look forward to your support over the remainder of the deployment. I would like to personally thank you for supporting my Soldiers as well as all of the other Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, and Marines deployed around the world. Your support and appreciation makes a world of difference during deployments. The Soldiers of the 77th thank you!"
Sincerely, Captain Wesley -----, HHC Commander, 77th Sustainment Brigade.
Editor's Note: Care goods sent to us and marked for the 77th will be forwarded specifically to this brigade.

"Greetings, The purpose of this e-mail is to simply show my gratitude for this organization. It is truly a blessing to have such a dedicated organization that cares and provides for our troops are much as Support Our TroopsÂ® does. Not only does it have a strong support system for the troops but it also simplifies the donation process. I have friends that have been able to donate through the website and I believe it is essential to have more organizations as this one dedicated to help those that serve our country on a daily basis by putting their own lives on the line to protect ours!" Regards, Jasmel D.

"Good morning, On behalf of the Marines, Sailors, civilian employees and family members aboard Marine Corp Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, we would like to thank you and your organization for preparing and sending coupons to our service members and families. We truly appreciate your commitment and contribution to our coupon distribution program and would love for you to keep us on your mailing list.
Our personal financial manager here at Marine and Family Services conducts a quarterly "Biggest Saver Coupon Contest," and it has been a huge success here on the air station. Last quarter's winner saved $216.95, and the biggest saver overall saved over $650. The winners receive a free one hour massage.
As you can see, the work that you have put forth with these coupons was not in vain. Again, thank you for all that you do to support our military community.
