Care Package Thank You Note and Photos!

Here's a note along, with some great pictures, from some Marines that received around 50 care packages we mailed out earlier this month. As you can see, the theme for these care packages was 4th of July. The boxes included our regular items of microwavable meals, razors, foot powder, powdered drink mix, room air fresheners, baby wipes, socks, flip flips, basic toiletries and snacks as well as 4th of July decorations and paper plates, cup and napkins.

Good Morning to the Amazing people of the Airborne Angel Cadets,

Our detachment had a get together yesterday to enjoy each others company.  I have to tell you it had a Christmas feel to it with all the boxes your organization sent out to the Marines/Sailors of our detachment.  As they opened the boxes their faces were lit up and smiles all around.  It was  a great Saturday and I wanted to say thank you for making that possible.  The Marines and Sailors asked if we could send more things your way and I let them know they could get any things to me and I would make sure it got sent out this week.  I have been deployed many times but the support you all have given goes above and beyond anything I've seen.  We are going to hang the July 4th decorations up and celebrate this 4th of July for those volunteers showing continued dedication to our forward troops.  To friends I have never met I say thank you.  Have a great weekend and I look forward to keep in touch.

Care Package Thank You Letters - "We Appreciate the Support"!

Here are some thank you letters we received in the mail for the care packages we shipped in April. As you can see, even the "little things" in the boxes mean so much to the troops deployed overseas,

Care Package Thank You Note and Pictures!

Here is a thank you letter and some pictures from a soldier that received a shipment of care packages.

Hi Nancy,

Thank you for the last shipment of boxes that you sent.  I got a few pictures before several boxes were sent out to our smaller patrol bases.  In terms of your June 2nd packing date, yes we would gratefully receive one more mailing.  I am here until the latter half of July, and mail generally takes 3 weeks, so we will be able to receive one more shipment.  Thank you very much for all your support.

Sincerely,

CH (CPT) Andrew S.

These two soldiers are happy to get the snacks in this care package.

The care packages were distributed among the unit plus
 some were sent out to their smaller patrol bases.

This care package brought a smile
 to the face of this soldier.

Here are some recent emails that we received from our recipients. They will tug at your heart but reaffirms why we do what we do throughout the year. Yes, we sent the items mentioned.  We don't just send snacks and toiletries but other items to give them a bit of fun and items they request to make their deployments a bit easier.  

From Otis......

Mrs. Carter,

We received 20 packages and four big boxes.  One of the boxes had a pool which my guys have big (ridiculous) plans for, when I walked away several guys were blowing up the pool all wearing sunglasses from another care package.  It always makes me happy to see the Soldiers excited about the little things.  It was really nice to get a package on Memorial Day, thanks for thinking of us, we really appreciate it.  Oh and please tell whoever sent a towel thank you.  I lost my towel in the laundry and have been using a shirt to dry for a couple weeks. 

Mail is painfully slow.  My kids always grill me about mail letters taking so much longer to reach me than grandma and grandpa.  

We can still accept more packages, we give excess to the USO.  The base we live at is pretty small and we try to help our sister units out.  I think the the size of the base has created a sense of community among us.  We appreciate your supports.

Respectfully,
Otis

From Danny.................

Hi Nancy, 

I can't say thank you enough for all that you do and the ways you support us. It makes a huge difference in the morale and care of Soldiers...and makes us feel a little closer to home. :)

Kind regards, 

Danny

From Brandon............

Good Morning Ma'am,

Our detachment would be honored to be in your rotation.  The address is still the same and we will be able to receive mail until late September.  I hope you have a great weekend and thank you for all that you do for our service members around the globe.

From Brian.............

Mrs. Carter,

                We have received the care packages. I am SO sorry for not replying sooner. Things have been a bit crazy. We were able to send packages to Soldiers that are in other countries and we are definitely prepared to receive more packages. We have Soldiers living in pretty austere environments. About 80 of our 140 Soldiers do not have regular access to a shower or a hot meal. A hot meal comes to their sites on a rotational basis. So, these packages with socks, snacks, and hygiene kits are extremely helpful. For the Soldiers we have in ____ are sincerely appreciative of the care packages that we have received. You all are truly amazing people with great hearts.

V/R ,

Brian

From Torren..........whose boxes were sent on Apr. 21.....talk about slow mail.....

Nancy,  We just received the care packages two days ago.  Thank you so much for everything.  The tools all made it and have already assisted us in being able to get things done more efficiently. The men are very happy to have received everything and truly appreciate all you have done for them.  The fans are also a big hit.  Each of our towers now is able to have some cooling abilities and they arrived at a perfect time as it is heating up here.  We were very surprised at how long the batteries last on them.  They go for about 20 hours straight before needing a recharge which is great.  Please extend our thanks to all of the people who have graciously given their time and products to us.  As far as our address, it is still the same.  Since we just received the boxes, I think we could probably wait until your next rotation if there is someone else in need of the June shipment.  If not and the supplies are available, then we would gladly appreciate additional care packages.  Thank you again for everything and I look forward to our future correspondence. 

Torren 


Since they do not have A/C in their guard towers, they asked for fans. We sent them 10 battery operated fans with 62 rechargeable batteries & 4 battery chargers. If you wish to help, I'm still sending them D batteries.

This new request recently came in Friday and really tugs at my heart. He only asked for 1 box for he and his men.

Airborne Angle Cadets of Texas,

I was just wondering if you had one package available that I may share with my members. If possible.

Paul 


I replied asking how many he could reach and that we would gladly send him more than one as he is in a location where we currently have no recipients, but he insists on receiving only 1 box.


Nancy,

 I’m asking only for one box because I certainly don’t want to be overwhelmed from support back home, especially when there are other bases throughout _____ that have far less than we do. (Is that even possible?!) So I ask for is one box at the moment. As time goes on, I may reach out again. 

Thank you for your sustained support!

 -Paul


Well, he will get 1 HUGE box!!

*********************************************************************


Thank you again for all your support to these men and women. It's the least we can do for all their sacrifices. Your generous tax deductible donations allow us to continue sending these heroes a bit of home.. 

God Bless America and all those that defend her!!
Nancy
