Hello

I am Sgt. ____, I received one of your backpacks that was filled with goodies. I must say it did my heart good to read the cards and see the small flag that the girl scouts made. I am glad that people stateside still think of us. My wife and I both are deployed and good people like you have helped my mother take care of our children. People back home don’t really know how th simple things from back home are missed. Thanks again for the support.

Good morning Ma’am,
I just received a care package form your organization, and I want to thank you very much. I would also like to respond in regards to future care packages. I work in the deployed behavioral health clinic as a part of Joint Task Force ______, one of the things we use to make our clinic a more enjoyable space is having snacks and hygiene materials from care packages available for our troopers as they come thru. Our clinic is staffed by 2 females, and 7 males, and with approximately 20 clinic contacts a day. We would greatly appreciate receiving more materials from you in the future. My shipping address can be found below. Again thank you very much, and I hope you have a great day.

Greetings from Commons Chapel,
My name is SGT Jared ____ and I am a Chaplain Assistant working for a Joint Task Force in Afghanistan. The chapel I run has received packages from your organization. I cannot begin to express how much the Service Members here appreciate and sometimes rely on these packages. The packages you send have impacted individuals at every rank and from all branches of the military.

Again, there are no words to describe how much your contribution has meant in the past. I
would love to be able to continue to support the members of my Joint Task Force with your help. Things we can always use are basic hygiene product (bars of soap, shampoo, tooth paste, tooth brushes,deodorant), Snacks (cookies, candy, beef jerky, trail mix), and drink mixes (Kool-Aid, K-Cups, Crystal Light). Anything you can send will be distributed to our task force of over L500 Service Members from all branches of the military.
Thank you for your past support and I look forward to any support you can provide in the future. It means the world to me that there are people back home thinking of us and who are willing to sacrifice their time and resources to support us all the way on the other side of the world.

Good morning!

My name is Sgt Baker, Ryan. I am currently stationed at Camp _______, Kuwait. I am an Information Technology Analyst for the United States Army Signal Corps. Recently, we received a care package from you and was overjoyed upon opening it! We quickly began to distribute the snacks, candy, toiletries, magazines, socks and games around the platoon and buddies. It’s almost Christmas and your generosity brought a smile to each and every one of our faces. Being separated from our family, loved ones and friends during this time of year is extremely difficult. We each deal with it in our own way. I wanted to formally thank you for you relentless support and unwavering dedication to United States service men and women stationed abroad. Words do not do justice to explain how grateful we truly are. I hope that you have a very Merry Christmas and an extremly festive New Year. All my love and respect.

Respectfully,
Sgt Ryan C. _______

Dear Jan and all the good people at OQC,
Thank you very much for your support! It REALLY matters. Knowing that you wish us well helps us focus on the task at hand.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. It’s almost Christmas time our here in Kuwait. When I arrived in August I never thought Kuwait would ever be cold, but we are experiencing some cold weather here. It sure beats 120 degrees.Let everyone know that we appreciate them and the work they put in. We have really been amazed by all the letters and boxes that have been arriving from the USA.

LOTS of what we find in the care packages are put to good use, I assure you.
Best wishes!
David
