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!
