"Hello, I am an MWD handler stationed in South Korea. You have recently sent my soldiers care packages. I don't know how to thank you enough for that. I am an experienced veteran and have spent many months away from home. As for my soldiers, this is the furthest they have ever been away. I am blessed to be able to see their faces as they open the boxes. As a leader I step in and remind them that this is all given and packaged and sent to them in thanks for their service. Ma'am, I cannot thank you enough. Thank you for what you do. Thank you for all that you will do. Side note to this all. As the boxes came in, I noticed one thing. Traverse City, MI. God bless the people of my home state..."
"Thank you so much for the care package! I've already put the coffee cup to work and Agbar is giving the ball his best lol. I can't thank you enough for the support we receive from your organization."
- From Fred, Army Handler in Afghanistan
It's been a while since I've contacted you. How are things going? I tell you that our handlers have really appreciated the help received by you and your organization. I have two new addresses if you are still able to help out a little. You wouldn't believe the difference that you and your organization are making the lives easier on the handlers during their deployment. I'll include their emails so you may go direct and receive some pictures. Thanks again so much for the help."
"Thank you very much for the package. My dog, Johnny is really enjoying all the treats you sent. Plus he looks handsome all brushed out with our new FURminator. Ii am also enjoying the truffles too. I can’t thank you enough."
"Please excuse me for not getting back with you. As you can imagine it has been pretty hectic around here. (And still is.) We did get the shirts and want to thank you very much. We sure appreciate them greatly. We are all doing pretty well here and a few of us are getting very anxious to depart. (Even though we have between 45-60 days left. I already missed hunting season so I really don't care when I get home as long as I can hunt next year. But, with my luck who knows where I'll be by next fall?? But for now, know that we are all well and we appreciate everything you have done for us.
Take care, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!"
Thank you all so very much for sending boxes of cards over. Every handler got a stocking and I shipped out 100 boxes in three days. The handlers are so very thankful to all of you. The weather is great here for the pups so they are working their tails off and I can tell you we are making a huge dent. You all have made this a very enjoyable deployment for me. I have been able to take care of all my troops and then some through all of you. When we couldn't get things through our channels fast enough we went to you and you all delivered 10 fold. The kids and pups got everything. When I couldn't mail it to them, I went out with a Full A-bag and hand delivered your goodies to them. I usually shut it down for the holidays because it is very hard being away from family and you all have allowed me to enjoy it through your tremendous generosity. I will never forget you and what you did for my troops.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."
"It was just a little way of saying thank you to you for all you've done. You've brightened many people's lives during this deployment."
"Thank you for your support. It means more than I would ever be able to tell you. Merry Christmas. Talk to you soon."
"Hey, just wanted to let you know that I got your package last night. We both gave our dogs a treat right away and from the crunching, gnawing noises they were much appreciated. I will give Taran his new tug tonight and I'll take pictures to send. Thank you!!! "
