Thank You from Afghanistan

Subject: Thank You from Afghanistan (UNCLASSIFIED)

Dear Mr. Orr and Operation Community Cares:

I wanted to take the time to send a thank you for the many boxes that were sent our way. I run a Combat Stress Clinic (i.e., mental health) at a forward deployed base in Afghanistan, and taking care of Soldiers and Airmen is the cornerstone of our mission. A lot of guys don’t have easy access to snacks or personal hygiene items, so I wanted you to know just how much they smile when we show up armed with care packages. It is also a huge moral boost to be reminded that people haven’t forgotten us and America appreciates the work we are doing on her behalf. Thank you for taking the time to support us.

If able, please forward onto the students from Rancho Cucamonga High School and Jefferson School Library that we received their letters and enjoyed reading them. It is a pleasure to hear from them, and now many of their letters and pictures are hanging in our clinic as reminders from back home.

If you would like to continue sending care packages, I can personally assure you that Soldiers will receive the items and be told where they came from. Our mailing address is:

455 MED / Combat Stress Clinic
Shindand AB
APO AE 09382

Again, thank you.

God Bless the United States of America.
