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,





  1. This is what it is all about and makes it all worth it! This just made this day even better.

  2. THAT right there is why I make cards for OWH. I know how much it meant for our daughter to get mail from her daddy when he was deployed. That’s why kids cards are my favorite cards to make.

  3. Sounds like you’re really stepping our cards up another notch with your well appreciated drawings. Way to go, Dad! And then your little ones pull it all together with their coloring! What joy!
    Thanks for your great letter, J.B.!

  4. Wow! Thanks for sharing this!

  5. That is what is all about!

  6. So touching
