This has a big impact on morale

From a soldier in Iraq:

On behalf of the Xth Combat Support Hospital we want to say thank you for your letter and package we received on May 19, 2009. Soldiers love to sift through the cards and I see many of them walk away with 5 or more cards in their hands! It's such a blessing to them and they continually thank us for allowing them to take as they please. Most of them ask where they came from and I've given them your URL. I know this has a big impact on morale and they're always looking forward to new shipments! The Father's Day cards are amazing! They came in plenty of time for the Soldiers to pick them out and send them off. They constantly ask us when we're getting more! It's so exciting to see them when I tell them we got a fresh batch! Many of them have asked me to thank you on their behalf. Thank you so very much!

Chaplain H and Specialist B make up the Unit Ministry Team (UMT). We provide support to all Soldiers and patients. The UMT plays an essential role in religious support and morale of the Soldiers. Soldiers often come to us seeking moral, ethical, and spiritual guidance. It is our goal to provide them the best care and support possible. We are able to encourage our Soldiers because we have support from amazing citizens like you of our Great Nation!

Thank you for your kindness to our soldiers,
