Email from soldier receiving Girl Scout cookies

Over a week ago, we sent 102 large boxes, each filled with 28 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, one lb. of coffee, water balloons, playing cards, DVD, microwavable popcorn, phone cards and letters to our adopted units. They, in turn, took many of those boxes and pushed them out to soldiers serving in remote bases increasing our reach to over 12,000 soldiers. We still have over 300 more large boxes of cookies waiting to be shipped out but first must raise the funds for postage. Please consider assisting us in this worthy endeavor. Your contribution is tax deductible and 100% of our funds goes toward either shipping or the purchase of goods that the soldier's request.

Here is one of the replies from a recipient...


Ms. Carter and the members of Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas,

I am writing to express and convey the heartfelt gratitude that each and every one of the over 600 Sailors at NMCB-5 experienced when we received your package of Girl Scout cookies. Many of our Sailors are on their very first deployment, and most of the rest are on their second consecutive tour in Afghanistan. It means so much to them to receive these packages from home. They are learning quickly that many of little things from the United States that they took for granted are the very things that make our country the best place in the world to live and work.

Please know that each and every day, your important work is touching and improving the lives of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines as they put themselves in harm's way at the call of their country.

God Bless all of you.

Sincerely,
LTJG Nathan D., CEC, USN

S7A, Naval Mobile Construction Battalion Five
