I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the post card you sent me. It's such an amazing feeling to have a complete stranger reach out in support. Just knowing how many generous and loving people support us back at home keeps us going.

Let me start by saying how much I appreciated receiving your card.  My Soldiers were grateful as well for your efforts.  You certainly don't have to take the time out of your day to write letters.    Again, thank you so much for all you do and your support.  Your efforts epitomize that phrase and you are much appreciated by those of us downrange.

My unit would like to sincerely thank you for the package you sent us. We are in a relatively remote location without all the amenities so the support from organizations like yours are deeply appreciated.

Thank you so much for the hand-written card you mailed to me and for taking the time. It is nice to know that people are thinking of soldiers as they do their duty out of sight and mind of so many. We are over half way done with this deployment and I hope to be home in a few months where I will return to my civilian job. I am a US Army reservist and this is my second deployment. I enjoyed receiving care packages while in Afghanistan in 2014 and its a comfort to know that people care so much. I thank you again for writing and hope all is well with you and your family.

Thank you very much for the letters we received from your organization, the Letters To Soldiers Club at Legacy Traditional School.  As a recipient of your letters, I have arranged for them to be distributed tomorrow (30 December) to the Marines and Sailors of my unit, Combat Logistics Regiment 3.
For many of our Marines and Sailors, this may be their first holiday away from home.  Homesickness is common.  It is comforting and encouraging to them to be reminded that they are not forgotten and that their sacrifices are appreciated.  Please extend my appreciation to all those at the Letters To Soldiers Club at Legacy Traditional School for the time and effort that they have invested on our behalf.
Many blessings to you one and all this holiday season!

LTS,
I wanted to let you know I received your letters, and to let you know how thankful I am for your kind words. It's comforting to know that people are thinking of us back home. It always brightens our mood when we receive anything, whether it's a care package, a letter, or a simple email with a thoughtful message. We're not always able to respond, but you should know that it's always appreciated.
 It's been tough at times, but that makes our return all the sweeter, and all the support from great people like you always makes things easier. I hope you're having a happy holiday season, and have a wonderful new year.

I would like to thank you so much for the gracious amounts of supplies that you sent! We are a small team of 18 Marines away from home, the packages that you send made us feel right at home.  The Marines and I greatly appreciate the donations in which you so gracious gave us. What really it home for us was the touching letters the students made for us, thanking us for what we do. From the bottom of our hearts the Team says thank you ( side note a few marines got teary eyed while reading them).

Good Day!
How are you? Hope all is well on your end.
As always and as promised, when I redeploy I like to share the name and contact information of my replacements, so they too can reap the gracious benefits that I received throughout my deployment. This have been a long, but very rewarding tour especially with your tremendous support!
I would like to Thank You again from the bottom of my heart for the boxes of love that I received for my team and I. It definitely made this deployment a lot easier. I am grateful for everything. 
Best Regards, 
HM1 Darrell

I just wanted to say thanks for all of your support over the last few months.  The Airmen of the 409th AEG have really appreciated it too. These are the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines that receive the items you put in the mail.  So on behalf of all of them, I want to say thank you for each and every care package we received.  The items went a long way in making my troops feel just a little closer to home. 
Thanks,
Pat

Hello!
 Thank you for your recent box. I just received it in the mail today! I loved all the snacks and wonderful cards from the kids that was included in the box.  They all brought a smile to my face and I shared it with the rest of my team. 
Tell everyone I said Thank you! Weather is definitely hot here, but starting to cool down again....We are above sea level in the mountain areas of afghan, so we are lucky to not get the scorching summer sun heat.  Our count down to return home will begin soon.    =)
I appreciate your continued support! 
Very Thankful! - Darrell

As I approach the end of my tour in Africa, I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to you and the many folks that contribute to your cause. We have received many boxes and distributed them across the largest continent in the world. The letters from the kids and the variety of goodies have made soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines feel a little more connected with the folks they are defending. On behalf of the the personnel I command and the people they support, THANK YOU!!

Hi, this is Sgt Kevin  I'm a Maintenance Team Leader and Welding NCOIC (non-commissioned officer in charge) for Echo Co., 1-7 Air Defense Artillery Battalion. It really means a lot to me and my soldiers what you & your organization is doing to support us while we are deployed. Surprise mail always seems to brighten our day. I've never been to Arizona but if its dry and hot during the day and cool even cold at night then yes it's similar to here.

I believe that all of our locations received all of the boxes that your club has sent out.  Everyone was GREATLY appreciative of the many items we do not have access to everyday out here that came in the boxes.  The holidays treated us extremely well thanks to all of the care boxes we received!  Its such a great bond that we share out here... even though we were not home with our families, we do fill in as each others family members being deployed. 
Take care,
Becky H

I would like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support and generosity. Everything you all do makes our lives a little better during such hard times. It’s amazing how a little piece of home can make such a significant positive impact on a soldier.It really does make all the difference. You may never know the enormous impact that you have on these soldiers and how deeply some of them have been touched by your support and genuine care for their well being, but I can tell you that you set the standard for what we all hope to be. Thank you again for everything you do and everything you represent. You will always have a special place in the hearts of the soldiers from Alpha 5-3.
Sincerely,
SGT Andrew​

The Letters to Soldiers Club
      I would like to thank each and everyone one of you for writing letters to the Marines from Marine Medium Tilt-Rotor Squadron
261(REINFORCED) deployed with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. In the squadron I have the privilege of not only being a pilot but also the officer in charge of the Flight Line Division. We have now been deployed and away from home for just over 7 months. During the course of our time at sea I have observed the stress placed on Marines from being so far from home. Receiving letters from home reminds them of the importance of our mission and improves the morale of the entire squadron. Unfortunately not everyone has someone back home to write to them. To those Marines, your letters were a huge surprise and put a smile on their face.
     Your efforts have made a positive and measurable impact on the morale and readiness of this squadron. Thank you and God Bless America.
Semper Fidelis,
Captain James W. McBride
UH-1N Huey Pilot
