The following is a wonderful message from S. Kristine, Lt. Col., stationed in Iraq after she received one of our care packages. Thank you for your dedication and service to our country!

I received an unexpected box today from VFW Post 4387, San Diego (one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been) that made me feel absolutely special! Girl stuff! I can’t thank you enough for sending such wonderful little goodies!!! I put the lip gloss on immediately and then tucked the lip plumper into my pocket:-) Plus what was really fantastic was the cross-ages items (e.g., firming creams) since I turned 40 last month and need some extra oomph…

I will take the box today to some lovely ladies who I know will be thrilled…it’s like finding a treasure chest! We will be wonderful women for a stolen moment instead of airmen, and soldiers and sailors:-)

I saw news comments recently about controversy over the idea of sending care packages with make-up. I want you to know that your thoughtfulness instantly brought life back into perspective and definitely gave me a big boost. Thank you most sincerely, Kristine
