FC2(SW) Kent, Patrick – USS BATAAN

I just want to say thank you to you, your family, and your supporters. My division of 26 and I have received boxes from you today during an underway replenishment, and we could not be more thankful! We all got enjoyment out of the letters that were in each care box and we passed them around so everyone can read. I enjoyed that there was something different in each box. We all gathered around each other while each was being opened. Just imagine you have 27 22-32 year old men and women acting like there were 8 years old again. It was a sight that will stay with me for years to come. Its always nice to have a reminder that people other then our family members know that we are out here and that are thinking of us. We have around 6 more months of being out to sea then we will be back in home port if there is anything I can do to help here or when we get back please let me know and I will be more then willing to help. Thank you again so very much for what you do its not everyday that you get something in the mail. I know you made all of our days if not our deployment.

Very Respectfully,

FC2(SW) Kent, Patrick

Letter from Byrd, Fernando C. LT (CVN75 AIR/V1 FLIGHT DECK OFFICER)

Dear united for the Troops,

First off, I would like to say Thank you for the care package that you sent with all of the wonderful treats. We truly enjoyed them and it really means the world to us to know that we are appreciated. We have decided to hang the cards that you sent on our board outside of our office for all to see along with the letter describing how your program got started. That said, it is truly amazing that we have wonderful citizens in the world like United for the troops and sponsors that appreciate the sacrifices that deployed Sailors, soldiers and marines make every day. Once again, on the behalf of myself and my Flight Deck crew onboard Harry S. Truman, we appreciate it and its citizens like you that make the world a better place. We ask that you continue to pray for our safe return as we continue our journey defending freedom and democracy around the world. Take Care.

Very Respectfully,
LT Byrd

Thank You from ISAF Joint Command Kabul Afghanistan

To Jim & Pat Rathschmidt,

On behalf of the soldiers, airman, Marines, and sailors serving in Afghanistan at ISAF Joint Command, I want to personally thank you for thinking of us.  The packages were great and contained all the things we use every day.  They went quickly!  You thoughts touched hundreds of servicemen/women and help us not to forget why we serve our nation.

We received cards from:  Federica, Abigail, Brendan (CCD Student at St. Elizabeth, Ann Seton, NY), Kelsey (Yorktown Heights, NY), Izzy (CCD Student at St. Elizabeth, Ann Seton, NY), Sammy, Julia, Agatha, and Rebecca times 2 (Troop 1165).

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Semper Fidelis,  Colonel Gino P. Amoroso USMC
