Troop Letters



Thank You Thank You Thank You!
There is so much that comes to mind when I think of all the support we have received and all of the love we’ve been shown. We have been absolutely blown away by the countless words of encouragement and numerous items sent our way. Our battalion’s morale has been increased because of your selflessness, your heart for Soldiers, and your heart for our country. You did things you didn’t have to do to grant us access to things we didn’t have. For all you have done I offer our sincerest thank you and my personal commitment to complete the task that lies ahead.
You are a most needed blessing and an answered prayer for us and I pray God’s continued Grace, Mercy, Favor, Peace, Protection, Love, and Success to you. From the Soldiers of 3-29 FA and the Unit Ministry Team, thank you very, very much.

I just wanted to sent a note of appreciation for your support to me and my team currently located in Poland. We are truly thankful for you care
packages. I can’t wait to make it back home! Thank you and God Bless, Greg Funk

We received the care packages today! Everyone was so excited to get all the goodies that you all sent. Thank you so much for the support, it’s great to know that there are folks back home who are kind enough to do something like this for us. We didn’t expect so many items so we went ahead and distributed them to a few other units near us and they thank you as well. We really can’t thank you all enough, these simple things really give meaning to the work we do out here everyday, not just for the temporary gratification of getting something you needed, but also knowing that we are in your thoughts and prayers. Kindness is contagious and your organization is an inspiration. Please keep up the awesome work! – Karl

Mrs. Thompson,
I have received your care package and distributed it out to my soldiers. Thank you for your support. All of the soldiers had overwhelming smiles on their face when it arrived. God Bless and Thank you again.

I am happy to say that our platoon received a box of snacks including beef jerky (Probably the platoons favorite of all) chips, cookies and other goodies! We are truly grateful for this gesture of goodwill as we are doing our duty to go where our nation beckons. Your letter was very heartfelt and it moves us to have such support from people back home, people that we don’t even know, who would care enough to reach out to those separated from family and loved ones! Blessings to you and all those that support us and to the many, many other military you support.
God bless

Thanks so much for the care packages. And a BIG THANK YOU for all that you are doing for us.

At home we probably would not be as excited to receive the items but here, these are “luxury” items for us.

We couldn’t believe all the stuff you sent us. OTA is a fantastic organization!

The kindness of strangers is so refreshing. It really warms my heart to know that there are people like you out there, willing to help people so far away that you don’t even know.

Please tell your volunteers thank you so much and they are amazing people to do this for us.

Your boxes definitely made a difference today. Care packages make our deployment a lot easier. You and your volunteers are a big part of what keeps us going. The items we received today will definitely go to good use and the kindness that came from them will go even farther.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart!

I really get lost for the right words when someone reaches out to my men like you all have. I know Thank You are only two words but I want your whole staff to know those two words come from my heart. Sleep well knowing that God and the HHC 1/112th will be guarding over you all.
