Dear Freddie and all the ‘Treats for Troops’ Teammates that supported us, thank you! We opened all the care packages on Christmas Eve and you guys rock (picture attached). The candy, magazines, all the personal notes and pictures were tremendous, and we are very grateful. It was especially cool to see you guys packing the boxes via the internet in our hometown of Philadelphia.
Our country and its citizens are awesome. It truly is about taking care of one another and for the common good of all people. For many of us here, it's been several deployments around the globe over the last decade, and the support of our service members from those back home only gets stronger. I know of no other country that takes such care of its military men and women. It means a lot to us, and we hope to do our job the greatest way possible to show our gratitude and represent you the best way we can.
It's not just about sending a box, but the thought and care to say, 'we remember you and want you to know it.' It’s the little note that I received from Jamie, in one of our boxes from ‘Treats for Troops’ that means the most. Because of this we thank you for your support and dedication to our Servicemembers. Know the team here is very well-taken care of and in excellent spirits. Happy 2015 and God bless America.
