You have no idea

Thank you again for the box of cards! You have no idea how many get sent just from my 25-soldier section! All of our families love them!

If cards are sent “freemail,” it takes minimum 2-3 weeks to get home; thanks for sending the seasonal cards nice and early!

Thanks again,



Letters are great, but…

Thank you so much for all the cards you sent to us. They are going fast! I am so grateful for this program. Letters are great, but a card adds a nice touch to waiting friends and family!

Thank you! You. Are. Awesome!


Keep changing lives

I wanted to thank you for the latest batch of wonderful cards – they are fantastic! Please pass my appreciation to all the others. Please share our appreciation at home from the teams like ours who you support. It makes a difference!

Keep changing lives there, and we’ll stay alert and safe here.

Best regards,

Tears in my eyes

I received my package of cards today and I was so grateful. I had no idea what I was really signing up for but your program is AWESOME! Not only am I impressed with the cards for me to use to write home but I sat at my desk with tears in my eyes (but hiding them from my coworkers) as I read your card and all the other cards and notes in the package! I shared a few with my coworkers but I selfishly wanted to keep them ALL for me.

I hope you are blessed and extremely happy because of the joy you bring to those of us doing very difficult jobs very far away from friends and family. I will definitely become one of your biggest supporters when I return home!

Thank you for all you do!

Cause us to keep in touch more

Sandy and volunteers,

I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much your cards are appreciated and used! I am stationed in Bagram, and when a new box comes in, I place it in the break area of the barracks and they are gone in a few days. They are all so nice! Very creative and pretty. They cause us to keep in touch more with home.

Thanks so very much for doing this!

Wrote one every day!

I just wanted to write you a quick note saying thank you for the box of cards. They are just outside of my office and people come by to grab a stack. I noticed one soldier wrote one every day! I’m not that good and try to write every couple of days.

Thank you again for your support!

Thank you and Operation Write Home for the great box of cards for us to use – I am encouraging my team to write home often! The cards are wonderful and knowing they are handmade makes them even more special.

Thank you and all of your volunteers for all of the warm and inspiring wishes in the hero letters…it certainly does help!

Thanks again,

Thank you so much for the lovely cards. They are beautiful! Everybody here loved them and I can tell who are the romantic ones! :)

One of our chiefs grabbed the miss you cards to send to his wife. I love the kids cards. We thank you very much for all that you do for us.

I’m sorry to hear about Ciara. My sister is a veterinarian assistant and loves dogs. She will be happy to hear the great things that you all do…very much appreciated.
