Giving our troops the opportunity to escape into a good book since 1999.

Thank you notes

"Hello, I just wanted to let you guys know that I received both shipments of books that were sent. I can't tell you how thankful I am. Since I am a resident patient at the Battle Creek, MI VA Hospital I have the the opportunity to leave them at the VA library here when I'm finished so that other veterans can enjoy the as much as I did. Thank you again, Todd P"

"I want to say Thank You for your support. Your efforts have completely enabled a deep love of learning and reading in my family. My husband (who hated to read) is now devouring books like there is no tomorrow. AND he is passing books around to his new unit. My house has turned into a mini library. I LOVE IT!!"

"We received our first set of books while on block leave at Christmas and I misplaced all the letters that came with them. I want to sincerely from the bottom of my heart thank every single person who has donated to us and made our reading library wonderful. We read nightly and our daughters are in book heaven! It's amazing what people are willing to do for what our soldiers do for our country! A big ARMY HOOAH to all of you for your generosity and kindness! Thank you again from the Livingstons in Fort Drum NY! May who ever you believe in, bless you with many acts of random kindness for what you have done for us! Peace be with you all!"

"Wanted to send a thank you to your wonderful organization. This week my children received a shipment of books from Bertha H (from Hudson, Florida) which contained various leveled readers as well as several Manga style books for my teenage daughter. My youngest have said over and over since the shipment was received "Look at all these wonderful books". The books will be so useful as I homeschool my youngest children and am always looking for new books for them to read - most which I have to order from Amazon or Ebay because we live out in the middle of no where and the nearest book store is over an hour away. Thank you so much for this wonderful service - we are very grateful. We also just received a second shipment from "Saginaw Valley Master Gardener Association" which contained numerous paperbacks for myself to read. That was a surprise as when I signed up, I was thinking only about the kids and didn't think I would be receiving anything for myself. I would like to thank them as well, the paperbacks they sent will definitely be appreciated at night when the kids are asleep and mom is trying to relax. "

"I just have to write and say THANK YOU a million times over! I am not sure if the volunteers that send the boxes out get the emails or not, but we have received a couple of boxes full of homeschooling books to help us and they have been so WONDERFUL! I even had on box that had stuff from a substitute teacher and she included stuff she uses in her class, and it has been so awesome!!! I didn't know how I was going to pull off homeschooling this year because we didn't have enough money to buy the books we needed, and with the help of these packages my kids are learning so much!!! Each and every piece of paper and book is being put the use, and we are ever so grateful for it all! I can't begin to express the gratitude my family has for so many wonderful volunteers sending the books to us, and people donating the books. We will pass it forward and help people out as well. But from the bottom of my heart and my families hearts thank you! You are a true blessing in our life!"

"Mr Tom D. and Mrs Dorothy S. On behalf, of my team, Expeditionary Resuscitation Surgical System Team 11, I would like to thank you for the shipment of books. The team was excited to have some excellent choices to read. Since we are only a team of 9, we shared with the Logistics Unit as well. We are standing by awaiting a mission and with current world events, it makes it interesting. I appreciate the time it took to collect books and mail them to us. I will share this with the local Military hospital, EMF Djibouti, with both staff and the patients that transient through the doors here. It is nice to know that there are still altruistic people like yourselves. We all look forward to safely returning home next year. God Bless"

On behalf of the USS Stout DDG-55 I just want to convey my humblest gratitude & appreciation. It is always nice to know that there are people back home that care so much. You folks are awesome!"
