Before we know it, July 4th, will be here…and we’ll be grilling out, watching fireworks, and celebrating our freedom in the beautiful United States of America.
Some people overseas, partly responsible for our freedom, will be working…battling sand storms, going without meals, and well…serving our country.
If you have the desire and ability to show support for our Troops this July 4th…please consider supporting Mission Soldier Adoption. We are always accepting donations of items for care packages or letters for the Troops. We received an email today stating that a gal is purchasing and donating 200 neck coolers for the Troops…it is through our great supporters, like you, that we are able to continue sending the love overseas.
Our greatest need right now is financially for shipping care packages. We’ve been sending out 35 packages a month…which is a cost of $437.50 per month. Is sending out that many necessary? Not for us…but it might be for our guys and gals overseas if our packages are the only ones they are receiving once a month.
If money is tight, please consider sending up a prayer for our heroes overseas this July 4th.
If you’ve got a stamp…send a letter and we’ll include it in our care packages.
If you love shopping, pickup a few items for the Troops (Gatorade powder packets, jerky, eye drops, gum, etc) …and we’ll ship them for you.
If you’re looking to donate financially to make a difference, we’d love your support to send care packages overseas…even $1 helps.
Either way, you’re receiving this email because you have donated in the past…and WE APPRECIATE YOU!!
God’s Blessings for the difference you’ve already made in the lives of our heroes overseas!

NEW Messages from some of our Troops:
“I wanted to thank you for the care packages. You have taken care of my team. You are a great American to be so kind to send snacks and hygiene products. Your support makes it easy to feel supported from home. The support means a lot and can make the day brighter. The packages are shared with my team. Again, thanks a ton! –David”
“I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for your care packages. Our clinic has been very busy the last few months. We really appreciate your support and generosity. It means so much to us here! –Kara”
“We really appreciate your efforts in helping us and the other soldiers you care for. Thank you for what you are doing.-Erick”
“We’re more than happy to be here taking care of our country, as well as Iraq, which is a huge job right now. But we do really appreciate everything we receive. I just wanted to take a little moment to say thank you for the generous gifts for our team. We always enjoy receiving boxes from back home, and especially from folks like yourself. It makes us feel good to know that there are still people at home that still remember us over here. Hopefully soon, our mission will end here, Iraq will be able to stand on its own 2 feet, and we’ll be able to come back home and shake your hand. Until then, keep us in your prayers. Thanks again.-James”
“We got hit the other day and one of my guys was hit pretty badly. He is stable for now and has been flown out of the country. He will have a long road to recovery but with luck he will pull through. I know this short and probably depressing but just wanted to keep you up to date with all of us. Thanks for your support.-Joel”
“Thank you again for your blessings and support. We appreciate it all. I received two boxes you sent today. They where most welcomed. I read your letter and thank you for your time in writing it. I thank you for supporting me and my fellow soldiers and airman. Small tokens of appreciation from citizens like you remind me and my fellow soldiers why we do this and what we are here for. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of every soldier’s life you have and will touch. Thank you again for your support.-Zack”
“Thank you for the package. It was greatly appreciated. Even something as simple as a letter from someone telling they support us does make a world of difference in ones day here. We are all volunteers, although we much rather be back at home with our loved ones, we love doing what we do or we would have chosen another career path. Thank you for everything.-Jason”
