"I wanted to take time to say THANK YOU ALL!! for putting together and sending us (me) these care packages! It truly does mean a lot! It's amazing how such a small gesture can bring so much joy. Again, THANK YOU!!!"
"I just wanted to email you and say thank you for your package. Your package was my first since I arrived in Afghan. I will share your package with all my Marines. Thank you so much and I am very grateful."
" Thank you all for the care packages that y'all sent this deployment. Sorry that I am just now writing you all. The packages were awesome and I shared most of it with my fellow Soldiers and NCO's. I will be redeploying here in the next month or so. So if you are sending another package, please do it in the next few days or it wont make it here in time. If you do, I do like healthy snacks and workout supplements. But don't go out of your way just to send one off to me if you weren't planning on it. I completely understand and don't want y'all to waste time and money on me when you could be sending another Soldier a package that just got out here recently. Thanks again and feel free to keep in touch if y'all want."
