I received an email the other day from a Marine. This is the reason Mission Soldier Adoption was created…to let the Troops overseas know that we support them and are keeping them in our prayers as they fight for our freedom and keep our families safe. Thank you to all who Support our Troops! Enjoy the note below!
Note from our Marine:
I came to work today and found a surprise, a package from you! I want to let you know how grateful I am that you care so much about us, please let Mackenzie from troop 2874 know that I said thank you very much, also Sarah Bennett, let them know that I appreciate all the effort they put into this.
Really, I don’t know how to thank you enough, you see, just two days ago a friend out here asked me why I never get any packages from home, I said, “well, is not like the first time we invaded iraq, we have more stuff out here now and we really have it good compare to the first time I was out here” he told me that when he gets his packages from home, it makes him feel good, like someone is thinking of him. When they told me I had a package, I said, “are you sure is for me?” I couldn’t believe someone would send me a package, so when I got it and saw your name on it, I really did feel special, thank you for making me feel like that.
Specially when I saw an envelope that said “to my hero” I was like wow! I am just thankful that I got something from someone who really cares, you are a special person.
Take care and God bless.
