Care Package Packing Party for the US Troops - April 17, 2021

The Airborne Angel Cadets of Texas, along with some great volunteers from The Colony DAR and Star Patriots, packed over 310 care packages totaling move than $6000 in shipping costs for the U.S. Military troops stationed overseas at our packing party on April 17, 2021. These care packages will be shipped to Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa and the Mideast. The care packages were packed with toiletries, snacks, microwavable meals, notes from supporters, and other goodies. The theme for this packing party was Beat the Heat.

Here are some photos from the event.

Unit is Happy to Receive Care Packages.

Here is an email and a photo we received from a unit that received 10 care packages that were mailed in March. The guards look so happy and they haven't even opened the boxes yet!

Nancy,

We have received all 10 boxes today and my guards are very happy with what your team has sent. Thank you again. Attached is a picture. 

Respectfully,

ARRA and WOW Send Donations for our Female Troops.

The month of March was Women's history month. In honor of our women serving in the armed forces, the eastern Michigan chapter of WOW (Women Ordnance Workers) and ARRA ( American Rosie Riveter Assoc.) sent Airborne Angel Cadets 4 boxes filled to the brim with goods for our female troops. Their mission is to keep Rosie's legacy alive as many of these ladies are decedents of the "Rosie's" from that era. We are so honored to partner with these incredible ladies and to receive their monthly shipments of support.

Photos and Thank You Emails for Care Packages

Here are some recent photos and emails from troops that have received our last care packages. As you can tell from the photos, the theme was Greeting from Texas. These care packages are so important with many PX's closed due to COVID.

Ma'am,

I thought you might like a few pictures of our Soldiers opening up the care packages we just received!

We can't thank you enough for your contributions. Not only is it great to receive the basic necessities like toothpaste, deodorant, shaving cream, and feminine products, but the little extras are really so much fun! More than a few people were excited to have t-shirts, bumper stickers, blank cards, salsa, pens, and water flavoring packets. Our installation is not exempt from COVID restrictions, and our PX is closed for now, so these boxes could not have come at a better time!

Thank you again for everything!

Respectfully,

 Nancy,

We got them!

Thank you so much. The top hits were the coffee, BioFreeze, Jerky among so many other kindnesses.

Last night during the 229th patching ceremony, we were able to have chips, queso, and a piƱata. This is a ceremony where Soldiers receive their combat patch after 30 days. Many held up cards that they were moved by as well. Due to COVID restrictions, the Px is currently shut down as well so this fulfills a great need and is a wonderful God thing (blessing) to us here in Iraq.

Thank you again, Nancy and Team!

Thanks to the Aledo chapter of the Young Men's Service League for their generous donation of goods to be included in our care packages to deployed troops. In addition to the goods, the young men wrote cards of encouragement and decorated the shipping boxes that will be used. Troops will thoroughly enjoy these much needed and requested items!

Care Package Thank You Letters

 We've received a letter and an email from two units that received the care packages we packed and shipped earlier this month. As you can read, these boxes make a big impact with the soldiers.

I want to say right off the bat...THANK YOU for giving us "TEXAS LOVE"! it was felt and the Soldiers out here were so excited to get these packages. Today we handed them out and some will be sent to other areas where our paratroopers are serving at. Those Soldiers are looking forward to having their packages shortly. Big increase in morale. 

Thanks again and God Bless you all.

Grace and Peace,

CH Ryan H.
