As always we topped off each box with a bag of cards so the troops never think they have been forgotten. Your messages of appreciation and encouragement are something they tell us are priceless.

So…while you’re keeping cool this summer, take a few minutes and write a note to the troops. It’s also a great project for kids to keep them from being bored or spending too much screen time while they’re on summer break.

Thanks for making these shipments possible.
