I was in the Air Force for 2 years and I never got a package from the home front. My Mom had just died two months after I went to basic, my dad never wrote and had moved on with his life. My two brothers(one a retire Lieut. Colonel in the army and the other was recycled from the Navy boot) also never wrote.
I felt alone with other people of my dorm who also never got a letter or a parcel even though our first night, we were ordered to write a letter home but mine came back undelivered for my father had moved. We must something for them even a letter, a package, a DVD of family activities; anything so they don't feel alone.

Thank you for your service and sharing your story. That feeling is of alone is something we are fighting against one care pack at a time thanks to your generosity and support. Thank you so much for using us as your resource to support the troops.

I'm currently deployed in Afghanistan and recieved a care package from you guys. I just want to say thank you so much. All the snacks and goodies definitely gave me a big moral boost. Keep doing what you do because I know that other soldiers would be very grateful for a care package. Thank you again!

Thank you so much for the love that went into the care package you sent me. I am currently in Bagram, Afghanistan and we look forward to getting boxes here. I shared what I received with my entire team here. Thank you again-words cannot express how much we appreciate the care package.

I am currently deployed to Iraq and received an email that I will soon be receiving a care package. I have not yet received the package but the thought alone that I am getting a package is enough to put a smile on my face ear to ear. I also signed all of my team up to receive a package. I am not going to tell because I want them to be is excited as I am. Thank you for everything you do for us serving.

Every year -- especially at Christmas -- I think about how great it would be to participate in getting "care packages" delivered to our troops who are serving on duty away from home. Recently, I heard "Troopathon.org" mentioned by a respected radio host. I wasn't familiar with that organization, but I searched on-line and discovered "Move America Forward." I am so glad I found them! Navigating their website was easy, and though I am not a wealthy person, I found a level of contribution I could afford. It gives me great pleasure to fund a care package that others will assemble and deliver. The website provides much information -- even listing possible items that will be included in the care packages. I am thankful for everyone at Move America Forward, who makes it possible for me to participate in such a worthy cause.

My husband is a Retired Navy Commander, my daughter is in the USAF...never ever can we thank those who serve and have served and especially those who have given the ultimate sacrifice enough!

My business (us) contributes to the best cause...our men and women in the armed forces! If I have an inkling someone is serving or has, I can't move quick enough to say thank you!
Would be a rather superlative gesture if our present government could do the same! In gratitude, Blessings upon all.

I was watching the news about a local fire near my home in Santa Barbara while in the comfort of my air conditioned home when I received the information about the weather conditions of 117 degrees that our Troops were having to bear and felt motivated to bring some relief to at least one of them.
I know it isn't much but I will encourage everyone I know to do the same. The act of helping one brave man or woman is the very least I can do. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.
Sincerely, Jill Mosher

Troop 9 is our family's "Troop". They make sure we are always in touch with them, which is important to us. We received a page with everyone's signature and a short message....we're framing it to help us to remember to pray for them. These attempts on our part to stay in touch also helps them, as evidenced by their many thank you's. This is a priority for our family.
