While there are thousands of extremely worthwhile causes to support during the holiday season, everyone in the USA owes some debt of gratitude to the men and women, past and present, who have sacrificed, worked fervently and risked their lives to protect and serve our great country.
This beautiful letter from Lyn (in New York) accompanied her generous donation of lip balm:
|Wonderful letter of thanks to U.S. Troops deployed overseas.|
For those who can't read the above image, below is the text of the letter:
We, here in the USA take for granted our happy times with families and our freedom to do what we please. Often we neglect to think of our brave servicemen and women who are far from families during this joyous time of the year.
Thank goodness for organizations such as yours who send joy to our troops who are unable to enjoy holiday happiness with family and friends.
Enclosed is a supply of Blistex lip balms which I hope you can include in some of the packages you are sending to our servicemen and women. While they are protecting our freedoms far from home, maybe these will give them a little 'taste' (pun intended) of home that they might enjoy.
Please convey my wishes for their safe return home at some point in the not too distant future. And also please send along my thanks for their sacrifice and service to our country.
Best wishes for a healthy and safe 2016!

Thank you, Lyn! We will relay your encouragement to our U.S. troops overseas!
