I have been to a few packing events for Forgotten Soldiers and it brings great joy to see the love that goes into every box. This group is simply amazing at what they do. They give our troops a boost of encouragement with the letters that are sent with the boxes.....not to mention the actual box that is stuffed full of good stuff they need. We need to let our troops know we haven't forgotten about them. My best friend was in Desert Storm and always told me he never felt like they got any love from home. I have seen pictures and videos of our troops opening the boxes. You can only imagine the smile they have on their face. Brings tears to your eyes to see how happy it makes them to open their box. One soldier even mentioned its like Christmas every month for him when he gets his box. Our troops need our support and Forgotten Soldiers Outreach gives them a ton of it. There isn't any group like this in the world.
Would you volunteer for this group again?
