"Alyssa writes ... "Thanks to you and everyone who sent me books I am close to 300 books right now, which is a lot more than I ever imagined. It has been wonderful to get these and be able to share with my friends here that would otherwise not have read at all. I appreciate everyone who is involved in this program.""

"Received another box from the Operation Paperback organization today. Thanks again. This box was from Morgan Park Juniors Women's Club from Chicago, Il. It was originally shipped on June 10. It went to the location where I was in Iraq. Then it was rerouted back to me in Kuwait. Sometime between mid-June and mid-August, it has been floating around this part of the world. I opened the box as other soldiers were around and several grabbed one or two. The remaining ones were added to our "take a book" bookshelf. Have a great week and keep up the good work! "

"Hi just a quick note to let you know another box of books arrived. I was on R&R when it came in and my office mates opened it and distributed the books, so I dont have the return address in order to send a note or otherwise identify. However, on behalf of folks here and the folks who look for a good read at the USO, thanks so much. Operation Paperback is a great program. HOOAH! Regards, Doreen"

"Hello! We did get a big box of books and it was like Christmas for the kids. Since both my kids love to read I didn't see them for a while after opening the box. Of course not all of them were a perfect fit but we didn't expect that. Since we lived in a big military area we shared the books that we didn't need and my daughter shared the grade level books with her class. Her teacher and classmates were so happy! We appreciate your effort to helping military families! Thank you so much! "

"Chrissy, First off, thank you so much for supporting us military families overseas in this way! We have received 2 boxes and between the two there were some books for each of our children's reading age/level. We would like to stay on the list a little longer, if that is okay, so that our kids can get a little more diverse selection of books to read at home. We plan on donating the books when we are done to the library here on compound. They currently have a huge selection of romance adult novels but only a few kids books and there are a lot of American kids here! Thank you for your time and all you do!"
