Soldiers Letters From The 2009 Holiday Operation

by admin

First and foremost, thank you for the care packages and keeping us in your prayers. Looking back at all that has gone on, I am more than grateful for all the prayers that have been said for me and my fellow troops. Had it not been for God’s grace, I do not know how one would survive over here.

Your actions (and those of fellow patriotic Americans) are greatly appreciated over here and provide a morale boost that many troops need this time of year. Due to the generous outpouring of fellow Americans, I have found a renewed pride in serving my Country and contributing to the success of a free Iraq.

Once again, Thank You to all of the individuals at United for the Troops and keep up the good work as your actions are appreciated more than one can imagine over here.

Merry CHRISTmas and God Bless,

SFC James

Dear United For The Troops,

First off, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Sergeant Major Young and I am the 3rd Infantry Division Fires and Effect Coordination Cell Sergeant Major. The 3rd Infantry Division is stationed out of Fort Stewart, GA and now conducting operations in northern Iraq. It is because of the support from great Americans like you and your community that recharges my desire to continue to serve after twenty eight year of active duty service. I have no problem lacing my boots each day for the same reason. I truly appreciated what you all are doing for so many Soldiers and I just could not pass up the opportunity to let you know what a difference you are making.

Today we receive a few of you’ll packages and one made it into the hands of a Soldier who had not received mail from anyone since his being deployed. The smile on his face is something that I could never describe in words. However, I would just like to say Thank You. Your kindness is making a difference far greater than what I believe you will ever know.

Thanks Again and Have a great American day.

Reginald M. Young

U.S. Army, Sergeant Major
