| Thank you for sending the packagve to me here at Bagram AFB in Afghanistan. I received it last week in excellent condition. I have received many packages from folks back home but yours stood out for how everything was packed and the items which were included.
I am the ophthalmologist here and see troops from all over the country. I give out the items to those primarily at the forward operating bases when they are here for a medical problem or are accompanying someone else who has a medical problem.
I am just about done with my tour and will be heading home soon. Thanks for all you do for the troops , especially the younger ones who have not been away in this type of environment before. It means a lot to them to receive these packages and to know others care for them.
Thank you very much.

I wanted to thank you for all of the things ALL of you sent to me. I wrote down one Military personnel on the sheet I was given to sign him up to receive things from you all.
He is actuallly on a team with a lot of other men serving in the Army who go outside the wire most of the time and never have the opportunity to do a lot of things that some of us are lucky enough to do, i.e. shop on spare time. So I thought I'd make you aware of the team he works with. That could be a place to send some packages, that way they all can have an opportunity to receive things from you all. Again, thank you for supporting us, it means a lot to all of us.
And here's a special letter going out to our troops:
Dear Brave Soldier,
Hello, I am an eighth grader from Eisenhower Junior High in Darien. I wrote this letter to you because I am so grateful for your service to our country. In my school we do this thing called Make a Difference Day. This letter is my contribution to you and I hope that this makes a difference in your day. I am so honored that you are willing to sacrifice your life for all the people in the U.S. I know being away from your family is hard but don't worry, we are all supporting you. I appreciate all of your hard work. I had a cousin who was an Air Force Jet Pilot. I hope this letter will make your day. Also I wish the safest of returns for you.
