LETTERS OF “THANKS” FROM THE TROOPS

Letters received September – November 2011

Date: Thursday, November 24, 2011

Dear AdoptaPlatoon,

I hope you can post this on your website!!!!!!!

I did want to express my most sincere appreciation to your company and to our supporters.  I can truly say that having used your website and been on your list has made all the difference in this deployment.  Receiving packages from home made and kept a connection that felt severed at time being here.  Through this past year our unit has made friendship with people and families that will endure well after we are home.  I just wanted to tell you that I personally responded and wrote back to everyone who mailed us a package, or at least I tried.  I wanted to make sure that the folks back home realize how much we appreciated being thought of and the overwhelming response we received.  It was one of the most pivotal actions for this deployment to receive packages and to feel that our Nation remembers their soldiers.  I can only say that we are committed to a purpose of freedom that is rooted very deep within of all American soldiers.  We can only pray that future generations will never know what it feels like to endure and see the tragedies of war, but I can say that we also have seen the positives as well…

What you do for the Military away from their families is truly a gift from the heart.  Each and every Military member greatly appreciate what you do.  It really is nice when one of your little boxes from heaven are received.  Thank you from the Officers, NCO’s, and Soldiers of F co. 2-227th AVN REGT. …

Words from our Troops

“Words from our Troops – “We got our first set of boxes and couldn’t be more excited.  I’ve attached a picture of the platoon to show you some of our thanks for all your support.  Thank you, again, for all you do

The Soldiers of HHC 2-35 INFANTRY

We have received over a hundred boxes in the last couple of days. The highlight has been the baby wipes and blankets. You should be called Adopt a Brigade not a Platoon for all the care packages you have sent! We just can’t believe all the support you have given us. It is truly amazing! …
