Dear Airborne Angel Cadets,
As a Dallas native it makes my heart proud to know that there are so many people in my hometown that are willing to give so much to make such a huge difference in the lives of Soldiers. The care packages that we have received from your organization over the past couple of weeks have been simply amazing!
It is obvious that you all have been doing this for a number of years as every package that we have received seems to be exactly what our Soldiers have needed and is packed with all the love, care, and precision that I would expect from residents of the Lone Star State! After all, everything is bigger and better in Texas :o).
Your consummate dedication and commitment to the welfare of, not only our unit, but every unit that you contribute to here in Afghanistan and other Soldiers around the globe, is a true difference maker and morale booster, the likes of which you may never fully know. Thank you so much for taking the time to bless our lives and make things just a little bit easier as we finish out our time down range. I hope and pray that this finds you well and that the work of your hands would continue to be established as you impact units for months and years to come.
Chaplain, Camp Marmal, Afghanistan
I would like to thank you for investing the time and money to send us a great set of care packages. I have been deploying on and off over the past 10 years and these are by far the best I have seen in all those years.
You have made our stay in northern Afghanistan a little more enjoyable with your thoughtful packages. Know that they have all gone to good use and you have mastered the art of care package building.
We thank the Kroger staff at each store for working together with us. The five participating Kroger stores were in Denton, Little Elm, Frisco, Plano and Carrollton.
