Gifts from a hero...to you!

Shipper Kris received a special treat from a hero....


Kris, I wanted to say thank you SO much for all of the cards you have been sending us.  I make them available to other units and my soldiers in the company too.  With the recent holidays we have been using them pretty often. My kids really enjoy getting them too!

Anyway just received one more box and wanted to let you know my unit will be leaving next month. I didn't want you to pay and ship the box without anyone here to get it.  I appreciate all you've done to help us remain in touch with our family and frinds. Here is a US Flag star as a small token of my appreciation for all you have done.

Thanks and God Bless, Cpt Lancaster

Wow, this is something to cherish.

It is awesome to hear from some of the men and women who receive the cards so many people work hard to make and send to them.

God Bless them all as well as all the folks at OWH.

Thank you so much for sharing such a heart warming note and special gift. A note of thanks is awesome... but the addition of a star from a retired flag just give me goosebumps. God Bless America!
