Thanks for all your support and all you d

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!

Being put to good use

We have received the most recent box of cards. I want to thank you so very much. They are definitely being put to good use. It takes less than about 4-5 days for them all to be scooped up.

How gorgeous the cards are

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.

Brought a great smile to my heart

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.
Keep up the good work.

Our wall of thanks to Operation Write Home! We LOVE all these cards from our soldier. They are too cute to stash in a drawer, plus the kids like looking over and over again at what Daddy sent them!

Each one special

Light at the end of the Tunnel

Hi Kris,

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.

Big hugs from all of us at Task Force Biometrics

Something special about a card or letter

My Name is Sergeant Major L.S. and I am writing this e-mail to express my sincere thanks to all those responsible for Operation Write Home.

I had only been in Afghanistan for a few days when I realized if I did not send a card or something to my wife and my daughter for Valentines day it would be late.

I went to the little PX we have here to purchase a card or something and nothing - that's when one of my Soldiers produced a box full of cards some of which looked homemade.

I selected my cards sent them off for free and though I missed the suspense by a couple days my wife and daughter loved them.

I know we have e-mail, twitter and facebook but there is something special about a card or letter even if it's just a quick note inside.

My wife has saved every letter and card I have ever sent while on deployment.

So thanks again - what all of you are doing makes a big difference.

Very Respectfully
Sergeant Major L.S.

It inspires me to keep in touch

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: FOUO

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,

-Jennifer

Colorful, fun, and various cards

To the Operation Write Home Team,

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!

Sincerely,

SSgt A.C.
