Thank you so very much for all that you have sent and all
those will enjoy it.
SgtMaj C.C., USMC
I would like to take this
opportunity to thank you and the organization "Operation
Caregiver" for your support of the Marines, Sailors and Soldiers
of the 1st Marine Division, particularly HQ Battalion Fwd. We
truly appreciate your efforts and generosity. Your gift
demonstrates your dedication and support for the military and
provides the service members currently deployed a bright spot in
their day. Through your faithful support of HQ Battalion Fwd,
you embody the values of self-sacrifice, patriotism and
community spirit which inspires our service.....
K.M.T., Capt., USMC, HQ BN Fwd
Thank you for the care packages!
SgtMaj M.K. provided many boxes for my battalion. I distributed
all the items I received to my Marines and Sailors who are
serving throughout Helmand Province in Afghanistan.
My Marines and Sailors are spread
out over 20+ small combat outposts. None of these positions have
PX's or fancy chow halls. Most eat only filed rations or food
from home. So care packages are our main source of comfort and
hygiene, regular food and other items. It is great to be able to
share these boxes from back home with the Marines. Care package
items carry great meaning to them all.
...Even though our battalion is
thousands of miles from home, care packages and letters from
home help with the distance. We appreciate your gift, your
support and your prayers.
Serving God & Country,
Lt. C.M, USN-CHC, 3/3 USMC
I hope this letter finds you well
and enjoying the promise of the new year. I'm writing to thank
you for the thoughtful care package of coffee you sent.
Obviously coffee makes the Marine Corps work just a bit better
than it would normally be, so it is a precious commodity that we
often find ourselves low or out.
SgtMaj A. was kind enough to
share with us what you sent and I must say that while regular
coffee is always appreciated, that top-of-the-line stuff you
sent was as surprising as it was/will be put to quick use.
Anyway, just wanted to let you
know we really appreciate the thought and care.
SSgt J.S., 3/25, USMC
Thanks a million for organizing this program and taking
the lead on getting packages to us here in Al-Anbar. I promise
you that these packages will be sent to our front line outfits.
Please pass on to all of the generous volunteers that
each and every one of us appreciates their kindness and devout
Patriotism. Our young men and women over here will remember this
for the rest of their lives.
...It is a true honor to be associated with such great
SgtMaj W.N.O., MNF-W CSM
Thank you for the continued
support you give to the Marines and Sailors of 1st Recon
Battalion. We are truly blessed to have such dedicated patriots
who take such good care of us while we are deployed. You all are
a blessing and we are genuinely grateful for your support.
Wishing you all God's richest blessings. Please keep in touch.

As I write this I am writing in
the middle of Afghanistan where I would normally be cold but
because of your foundation ...I am finally warm and comfortable
for the first time in weeks. I never knew before coming to
Afghanistan how cold it would get, so receiving your scarf and
booties were more than amazing. It really helps to know that
there are people and foundations out there to support us in our
endeavors. Please continue to support us in what we do.
Everyone here appreciates what you do for us; never forget
Cpl E.S., USMC, 1st Recon BN

Your kind words and support are
very appreciated. It's tough being away from home during the
Holidays. But the care packages make us feel closer to home. We
truly can't thank you enough.
HM3 T.W.S., USN, 1st Recon BN,
I wanted to send a short note to thank you for the care
packages. It means a lot to us knowing the people at home take

behalf of the Marines and Sailors of 3rd Recon BN, thank you!

On behalf of the 1st Recon BN, I
want to thank Operation Caregiver for all of what they do. As

Thank you so much for the care packages! My name is L.M.,
I am 26 yrs old & currently a Sergeant with the US Marine Corps.
I'm stationed in Northern Sangin, Helmand Province, Afghanistan.
During my time here I have been working as a team leader for a
Female Engagement Team (FET). Our job is to talk to women &
children RE issues within their community. This job also
includes gathering information on their suspected
husbands/fathers. It is a very interesting job and for the most
part we love what we do. We go about 45 days between showers and
hot meals so the treats are welcome and having soaps & things to
hygiene with means we get to smell good for awhile so thank you
again. Please enjoy your holidays and take care. :)
Just wanted to let you know we got a bunch of care packages in the
mail today from Operation Caregiver. :) You guys are awesome as
always, and we are thankful for all you do for us.
God bless you in all that you do. Keep in touch!
