On behalf of the troopers of the 173rd BSB (ABN), I wold just like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It truly is humbling to know people have not forgotten about you, while you are so far away from home. I hope all of you had an enjoyable holiday season. Your package helped make our alittle more bearable.

To whom it may concern,

Today is December 17th and I received your packages and was happy to get them and to know that someone cares for our military. I thank all of you who joined together to help out with the packages. I really do appreciate them and im sure that the other military men and women you send packages to are happy also. I will keep you guys in my heart and mind and will keep in touch with all of you. And I thank the veterans of VFW Post 8680 for there service in the military. If any of you guys would like to keep in touch then you can just email me and I will respond. Thank you again and God Bless. Merry Christmas.

Letter from Kevin

Good Morning,

I found one of your nice Christmas cards and watched the soldiers go through a care package here in Afghanistan today – I wanted to let you know the soldiers really appreciated the care package it came in. They get busy with their missions and sometimes may not have time to thank all of you. A Security Forces unit from the USAF and an MP Unit from the Army shared the gift.

The card said Rancho Cucamonga VFW Post # 8680. We are at Bagram Air Filed, in Bagram, Afghanistan.

You asked for ideas in the card. I know all the soldiers love DVD’s. Peanuts are all ways good…mostly they just really enjoy knowing people back home care. I know they like to read the little notes sent along in the care packages.

So, from a civilian (veteran) bystander here, thanks for supporting our troops!

Best Regards and Merry Christmas,
