Reaching Out to Our Heroes At Home and Worldwide.

JERRY M. W.

Operation-Shoe-Box-Thanks-Picture1-300x225 June 14, 2013 I would like to personally thank you for your generous gifts to the 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment currently serving overseas at Camp Buehring, Kuwait. We are a combined arms battalion stationed out of Ft. Carson, CO and are “on ground” in support of Operation Spartan Shield. I am the battalion chaplain, and we recently received the many boxes of packages that you sent to us out here. We could not believe the amount of items that you sent! In fact, it was both exciting and humbling to see box after box being unloaded from the mailroom. We truly appreciate your patriotism and generosity. The type of items that you sent: (Packaged snacks, candy, hygiene items, socks, and etc.) were spot on for what Soldiers readily use. In fact these items are the most requested and in demand. Our Soldiers genuinely enjoyed the gifts from Operation Shoe Box and every Soldier in the battalion that wanted a bag was able to get one! You may want to check us out on facebook under “Regulars by God.” Thanks again for your gifts! JERRY M. W., CH, (CPT), USA, Battalion Chaplain

Hello, I would like to extend a warm thank you for all that you all have done for my Soldiers located here in Afghanistan.  I am the First Sergeant for Headquarters Company.  I am just arriving to our final location and this is where we operate from.  I noticed the stockings that were sent and passed out to our Soldiers. I want you to know the looks on their faces were priceless.  Knowing they would be away from family during the holiday this let them know that they are not forgotten, Thanks…

My name is Sergeant Carlos Valdez. I just received my care package from Operation Shoe Box today and I felt a need to email you guys back home and thank you for all the help and support all the volunteers have given to soldiers like myself. It’s been a while since I received mail here and this was definitely a moral booster. I would also like to thank Eleanor Sullivan from Summerfield Florida for the lovely card sent in my package, please let her know that her kind words didn’t go unnoticed and …

I would like to thank you for the care packages that you sent to us. It really does mean a lot to my troops and myself when we know there are people who do care for us.

I just want to send a quick note to say “thank you” for all the time you spend putting together your care packages for America’s Service Members! I received one the other day and it is so nice to have some comfort items and necessities. I really appreciate your kindness, caring thoughts and prayers!

Just a quick note to say thanks for the care packages that you sent over to the 371st SUS BDE. The soldiers really like the items and even more is the fact that there are people like you that care and think about us while we are away from our families. So again I am very thankful to you. Thanks, thanks thanks.

My name is Lewis and I am a Warrant Officer in the US Army stationed at Kandahar, Afghanistan. My unit received your care packages the other day and I want to say thank you! The cookies and Cracker Jacks are always fun to get, but I was mostly touched by a simple handwritten note from Ruth Salerno. The soldiers here do our job because we love our fellowman and we still believe in America. We do not seek accolades, yet I find it very satisfying (and humbling) to know you believe in us. You call u…

I just got one of your packages today and it was awesome!  We got 8 bags, and I dispersed them quickly.  Also, in the bags were some knit beanies.  Man those were awesome!  I will be sending an email soon with a picture of a few of us sporting them!
