Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know I will be departing next month. I will be passing the torch for these great on to V.D.; she will be here until next year and will be able to ensure our team gets the deliveries.
Thanks for all your support and all you do for our troops. Operation Write Home makes a positive huge impact on morale, and we all sincerely appreciate your role in getting the cards out!
Thanks again for all of your support, and please extend my thanks to all of the wonderful card makers. My son, family and friends have always talked about how gorgeous the cards are that they receive, and I know it makes my son's day to get a card from me.
Hello gang, just to let you know my sweetheart is deployed to Bagram Afghanistan and yesterday I received one of your cards in the mail from her. She works 6 twelve hour days and 8 hours on Sunday. Yes 80 hours a week. Resources are very limited for her and she was very proud to be able to send me a card from your program not to say it brought a great smile to my heart to get it delivered to my mailbox here in South Bend, Indiana. When we did speak she told me about Operation Write Home and I want to thank you for your efforts.
I got the care package and yes you are correct I should be departing theater mid May. Wow, the year has flown by...NOT! Some days have been better than others. This is not my first deployment so I've come to expect ups and downs. There was talk of me being extended but I haven't heard any of it lately so I think I'm good to depart o/a mid May.
I can't even begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed receiving the lovely cards from you and your organization. I wish I knew of you before this deployment. I will be sure to look you up during my next deployment and I will tell all my friends about you. You have been a blessing and sense of comfort to me and so many of our service members. I still need to send out my Easter cards. My heart is in it but my hands are tired of writing...smile.
Home is close...I can see light at the end of the tunnel but still I must stay focused until I'm back in the states. Thank you so much Kris for all you do to make deployments tolerable and keep families connected through these wonderful cards. This will be a wonderful memory that will stay with me.
I am currently at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, and just wanted to say thank you for sending the cards to us here at the Craig Joint Theater Hospital! Last time I was deployed, I guess we didn't know about
'Operation Write Home', and this time it's been so nice to have the cards available, and I really enjoy seeing the creativity.
A lot of people ask what they can send while I'm deployed--and I think these cards are perfect. It inspires me to keep in touch with my family, and doesn't add to my waistline!
Thank you so much for the cards. I am currently stationed in Afghanistan. My husband and sisters are also in the military, stationed in different parts of the world. The colorful, fun, and various cards have been a great way for me to keep in touch with friends and family. Every time I look through the cards, one or more reminds me of a particular person. It’s such a blessing to have these at my disposal! Again, thank you so much for all of your hard work and support!
