Words cannot express our gratitude

(Received 09/18/2012)

Bob, Cindy, and Elaine,
I received a care package from you guys yesterday in the mail. I shared
with my battle buddy, and we wanted to tell you thank you so much. Words
cannot express our gratitude. Sometimes it is a struggle to be a woman
in the military because so many things are male based, especially for
supplies overseas. Fortunately, we have people like you(and the VFW who
helped) who remain supportive through our deployments.

Personally, this is my second deployment, and for my friend, her first.
I know how hard it can be to be overseas for the first time so sharing
with her was really special because we are sometimes without great
supplies for our hair and face. Everything in your box was amazing! We
loved the face wash and especially the makeup! They only sell limited
supplies and no make-up.

I would also like to thank the kids who helped with the letters and
notes. They are so encouraging and amazing to read. Neither of us have
children, but I do have a 2 year old niece and it is so nice to see
letters from home.

You all are truly amazing and we thank you so much. You brightened our
day over here. I have taken a few pictures and will forward those to you
in the next few days.

V/R,
