Thank you Sandy for the box of cards!!! It has been a long deployment but the Operation Write Home Cards have really made a  significant positive impact on the morale for our staff.  Sincere thank you for your group’s effort, it is America’s best!!!

I will now be home sometime next month.

The cards you sent

Posted by on Aug 28, 2014 in Hero Blog, Note from Afghanistan | 0 comments

I received your box of cards a couple of days ago—thank you so much.  The cards you sent will be provided to Headquarters United States Forces-Afghanistan and soldiers  here in Afghanistan.

The picture you sent of your golden retriever warmed my heart—I have one waiting for me to come home.  15 year olds is very old for a golden retriever, but Ciara looks like she’s doing just fine as a mascot.

Thank you again and all the best!

I just wanted to say thank you for the boxes of cards I have received. I also wanted to let you know I will be leaving theater so there is no need to send anymore.

Thank you again for everything you and your organization does. It has been greatly appreciated.

Your cards have greatly helped me

Thank you very much for the awesome cards. I received them yesterday. We really appreciate all of them. At this time, that will be enough. We are in the process of tearing everything down around the base.

We have been receiving several care packages for our soldiers and I was in desperate need of cards to write Thank You letters back for each of them. So your cards have greatly helped me and other soldiers.

Thanks again for all you guys do!!!

Thanks so much for caring

I just received another box of those beautiful cards from you. Thanks so much for caring.

I’ve implemented a great system of sharing them with the Troopers here. Everyone appreciates them and loves sending their family hand-crafted cards. Thanks again. These cards really make a difference to those of us that are deployed here.

Sincerely,

Y.C., CDR, USN

We have enjoyed all of the beautiful handmade cards

I wanted to take a minute to thank  you for your continued support.  We have enjoyed all of the beautiful handmade cards, and families have enjoyed receiving handwritten notes.  This is a great service that you provide.

As a unit we are drawing down and are not being replaced.  So the last box that you sent will be the last one that we need.

Again thank you for your support to our service members that are deployed.

I’ll be sure not to hoard them

Thank you so much for the box of cards from Operation Write Home.  We received the box this Saturday when we pulled into [port].  The cards are already a big hit with the crew.  As word gets around about the box (I have it out in the library so Sailors can help themselves), I’m sure it will be an even bigger hit.  I’ll be sure not to hoard them!

Thank you so much for taking care of us.  I think our crew (as well as their friends and family) are really going to benefit from your work.

 By the way, judging from the picture, Ciara looks like mascot life is awesome!

Very respectfully,

Chaplain A.H., LTJG, USN

Overwhelming generosity

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in Hero Blog, Note from Afghanistan, Note from Soldier | 2 comments

I wanted to thank you so much for the homemade cards I received in the mail. They are absolutely beautiful and it is incredible to me how detailed and well done they are. I can’t possibly fathom the many hours it took to make all of them, but your overwhelming generosity of time and resources truly touches my heart. I’ve taken quite a few of the cards for my own use to write my wife and parents and have put the rest of the box in our common area for the other 90 or so airmen here to use. We greatly appreciate all your hard work on our behalf, I know our families will love the cards.

Sincere thanks,

SSgt S.S, Bagram, Afghanistan

Thank you again from my heart

Thank you again for the box of cards.  I still had two-thirds of a box left from the second box so I decided to put this box in the barracks.  Wow … half the box is already gone.  We are down to about just over a month left in our rotation so I do not feel another box is needed.  I want to thank you all for the hard work you put into the cards and ensuring soldiers get them.

Thank you again from my heart.

You cannot comprehend

I would like to dash off a quick email to thank you all for participating in the OPERATION WRITE HOME project.  You cannot comprehend how great it is to have this resource available when the PX no longer sells greeting cards or post cards.  Your contribution has made the spartan existence here in Afghanistan much more tolerable.  I write my wife a letter every day, and the cards you provide make it easy to send her a card when I don’t have time to write out a regular letter.  Again, thank you for your contribution, and keep up the good work!
