McCoy Education and Learning Center. Your gift of reading and learning material is deeply appreciated by the service members we support in their life-long learning, and leisure reading while here at Ft. McCoy; and wherever their military experience leads them. Salaam alekum (Peace be with you; response, alekum salaam, and with you). Teşekkr ederim. Very Respectfully, Alan A"

"We have received another very welcome number of boxes of reading material from you... Thank you to everyone for your support of the service members passing through Ft. McCoy, WI on their way to training, deployment, or the very fortunate ones, back to home and family after sharpening their military skills for future "possibilities". Your generous donation of reading and study material is deeply appreciated. Especially welcome are the classics (Marcus Aurelius, "Meditations", Quote: "Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present."); and also any study guides, such as those found in or enabling service members to take college level courses (testing) and study anywhere in the world. Magazines and novels are also very welcome; controversial subjects that may lead to "team breaking", rather than "team building" are less well distributed. Field craft, practical application of mathematical formulas (Pythagorean Theorem) again are extremely helpful especially in easy to carry size. Money magazine, New Yorker, Outside, Popular Mechanics and more are all very popular. Thank you all from the Ft. McCoy Education Learning Center! Very Respectfully, Alan A"

"Dear volunteers, I cannot thank you enough for the shipments of books you have sent! I've received four boxes worth from your organization, and it has set me up with reading for the rest of my deployment. Thank you so much for caring. Your kindness has vastly improved my remaining time overseas. I'm leaving in about eight weeks and for some reason my mail keeps getting diverted to a different theatre before making its way over to me in Kosovo, so please don't send any more. I'm just worried the books will get lost in the mail and not make it to me before I leave, and I love books too much to consider wasting them like that. Thank you again for all you do! Warm Regards, Erin"
