Thank you so much for the cards, they were a big hit in the office. I am going to be leaving here in April however there will be people running this shop down here if you want to continue to send cards.
Again thank you for sending them. The Christmas ones went really fast, and the valentines were just as big of a hit.
I am sure you guys want to hear good news about what’s going on down here. Things are going really good for the most part. There is a constant change in personnel for the Air Force. We only get sent for 6 months for the most part so that really helps. I know as a 20 year old here, I have learned a lot by just coming here.
Thank you for all the support that you guys provide. It really does help us!
From all of us, thanks!
My thoughts travel to all of you! I want to thank you for the continual encouragement that you continue to be to so many people! We appreciate your organization because without you, the beauty of communication would be greatly affected.
Thank you for your continued l. God is so hearing all your petitions from across the waters.
Love to all of you!
Thank you so much for the Valentine’s Day and other cards. I always get so excited to look through all the beautiful cards! I hope you enjoy your vacation – I get to take mine soon too!

Thanks to you and your folsk for the great cards. Happy Valentines Day to everyone!

Yes that is my correct address and I can’t wait to read the hero mail and dig through the box of beautiful cards! My family and I have been so appreciative for the ones that I just happened to come across on the other side of base! Thank you so much in advance.”
I am Specialist S. P. and I am stationed at Kandahar Airfield which is just outside of Kandahar City, Afghanistan. I have been in the Army 6 years now I am a Chaplain’s Assistant and currently I work with the only Jewish Rabbi in Afghanistan. I also help out at the Chapel Ministry Center (CMC) on days that I am not traveling to different smaller bases providing religious support. I am 5 months into my deployment with just 7 more to go before I get back home to my lovely wife!
The service members and I greatly appreciate your support and generosity to us who are serving in Afghanistan. I take the cards I receive from you and I make sure the items get to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines. I take great pride in my job to support service members by also providing and maintaining a place to have religious meetings such as bible studies or prayer groups, having movie nights, and distributing snacks and personal hygiene products sent to us by caring people like yourself! I cannot thank you enough for your support, care, and prayers! Please thank -all of the volunteers for their kind gestures and hard work in putting together all of these sincere cards and boxes of goodies.
God Bless You!!!
Specialist S. P.
Operation Write Home,
Thank you for the blank cards which I used to stay in touch with my wife and kids from Afghanistan. Where I am stationed, card stock or envelopes are not available. Just when I was hunting around for writing material your gifts came arrived.
I appreciate your help in keeping me in contact with my family and providing thank you card to people who send boxes.

“Hey Sarg, these are realy Good.”
I was so touched by the significant contribution of cards that your group provided us…I just had to personally extend my gratitude. We are located in a place where stationary is hard to come by. You have truly blessed us with your beautiful cards. The love you have placed in this outreach effort is evident.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
