Thank you for the help u gave me one year ago furnishing my trailer.. Still going strong. Thank you again very much. -T.B. (Veteran)
TO MILITARY MISSIONS IN ACTION,
Words cannot adequately describe our thanks to you. We received an abundance of care packages full of games, snacks, music, hygiene kits, beautiful hand-written & hand-made cards, & scripture this afternoon, all from you!
I will be sending a hand written thank you card, but let me tell you a little bit about us so you have an idea of what your kindness did.
We are a medical unit currently on rotation out in the Middle East. Our mission is to offer medical support by operating a Consolidated Aid Station. While we are on standby for serious traumas & casualties, most of our day to day operations include soldiers who have fallen ill or acutely injured. While the work isn't necessarily "hard" (as we are trained for this), our days are long, & we are minimally staffed. We work 24/7 operations every single day. No holidays, no weekends- because let's face it, sickness & injuries do not cease!
My staff was making fun of me because of all the packages that came in for me today! I was very confused at first, but as I opened them, I told them it was for all of us! My medics came in to each grab goodies. They could not believe people they did not know were supporting them; what a humbling experience! You sent them the motivation to carry on with their duties, because even though they are away from family & everything they love, they know there are people back home thinking of them. Your love is felt from 7,000+ miles away.
So again, I say thank you! You are the America we are so proud to serve.
