From Kuwait (Troops go out on missions around Mideast.)
You are so awesome to think of us here in Kuwait! We sure appreciate your thoughts, notes & treats. The team works long hours, but sure get big smiles on their faces when care packages are delivered.
They are like kids, they get so excited by candy. But everyone has their favorites. Some are thrilled with shaving stuff, others it's protein bars, and others are happy for men's magazines.
I'm just happy to know there are folks at home thinking of us.
I travel a lot to visit many units throughout the Middleast. Many of my co-workers are stuck working in the office 12 hours a day 6.5 days a week. It's a drain, but care packages brighten their days. Thank you so much.

Dear Angels Supporting Our Troops,
On behalf of the Service Members and Coalition Forces of the 101st Air Assault Division, we would like to say thanks for the items that were sent. We are truly grateful as we enjoyed opening the boxes, playing the games and reading the colorful cards that were sent.
Please share our appreciation with those who partner with you, the schools, churches, private organizations and individuals people. Collectively, the items brought joy to our faces.
God Bless You,
From Undisclosed base in Mideast:
A lot of your boxes arrived today! Thank you so much for putting everything together, we distributed everything out and everyone was so excited! The knives were a huge hit, they will come in so handy and we'll use them so often that it will make our job much easier - rather than having to beg, borrow, and steal to get the tools we need.
We also got the snacks, flashlights, baby wipes, and other items you put in there - so we should be set for awhile! Those items will all be used and they are all needed - we have stored the items we can't use at the moment for use later.
Thank you again
