All the smiles

Posted by on Apr 26, 2015 in Hero Blog | 4 comments

I have been using your cards to write my family during my last two deployments. As I reached in a box to grab another handful, I knew immediately that this card would be going back to you with my sincere thanks!

Thank you for the amazing cards. Thank you for the reminders to write home, which many soldiers need. Thank you for all the smiles these cards bring!



Those cards meant the world to us

I just wanted to thank you again for sending the cards for me and my troops to use. We have returned home, and after reflecting on some days, those cards meant the world to us.

God bless you and Operation Write Home!



Mom loves the cards so much

I received a box with Mother’s Day cards inside. (Yeah!) You can take me off of the list now because I am headed home in mid-June. The next group is smaller and they will be left with unused cards from our four boxes!

Thank you so much for what you and your volunteers do!


P.S. My Mom loves the cards so much that she saved the ones I sent her from last deployment and gets them back out as holiday decorations each year!



My husband searches the card box

My husband has sent my daughters and I several cards made by OWH. Thank you to all the artists and everyone involved. My husband searches the card box to find ones with a special meaning. For example, he sent a beautiful card with a violin on it to my daughter who recently began lessons. She was thrilled to receive it! My family has been blessed by your kind hearts and generosity.

God Bless,


Over 200 cards so far

I received another box of cards from you today. I can’t thank you enough, I was just scrounging around our compound trying to find some more. This will probably be the last box I need, since I will be redeploying (going home) in May.

I can’t express how much your cards have meant to me, my wife, and my four children (ages 5 and under). Thanks to your organization, and our free mail, I have sent them cards every other day for the past 4 months, totaling over 200 cards so far. All of the cards have been of superior quality. Usually I draw a picture inside the card for them. They jump for joy every time they get a card in the mail and rush to open it and color the picture. It’s been an invaluable way to stay in touch and remind them of me while I’m gone during this critical part of their childhood and development.

Thanks again and keep up the good work,




Always fantastic and most welcome!

Thanks to you and the gang of crafters for the recent package of new cards! I must admit they are always fantastic and most welcome!

I was saddened by the news of your loss, although I could tell from Ciara’s smile that she had a wonderful life. Hope you’re doing well in adjusting. I’m a fellow dog person and I know it can be tough.

As always, my thanks…

Best regards,



A phenomenal organization

I wanted to say thank you for all you do for my soldiers and for me. Operation Write Home is a phenomenal organization and you guys give SO much. Thank you 1,000,000 times!

I wish I could have met your Ciara. She looked like Buddy, my 10 year old lab at home. They have such huge hearts, these furry animals! I hug Buddy just like you hugged Ciara in the photo. Such love! *

Happy holidays,


*This is the photo she’s referring to:


I am really impressed

We are the lucky recipients of one of your boxes of cards.  As a fellow stamper (Stampin Up mostly), I and the crew here are most appreciative of the beautiful cards.  I look forward to seeing new boxes and new cards.  Cards for kids are great!  Girly cards and cards for boys everyone loves mail!

Again, I am really impressed with many of the cards and I try really hard not to take all of my favorites…sometimes I just take pics so I can replicate or borrow the ideas for  when I get home…my craft room awaits!

So many are willing to share their efforts

First, I want to thank you for the cards. I received the box a few weeks ago, but kept forgetting to email you. I have shared them with our group here- about 45 of us. They love the cards-especially the females! It really is wonderful that so many are willing to share their efforts with us!

I appreciated the touch of finding a personal card from you inside the box too! Sorry to hear about your dog.  Yes, I am back for a second tour, but really hoping this is my last time…not getting any younger.

Again, thanks for all that you and your contributors do for us!
