"Chrissy, Thanks again for all the books that have been donated. My unit is very grateful to receive the books, but unfortunately we have run out of room to store the books. I plan on taking some of the extra books to the Airmen's Attic (a place where we can donate items for others to receive for free), but could you please remove my name from the list. I have received enough books to last me for the remainder of my deployment. Thank you for everything that you do for the troops. SSgt Kelsey S"

"Ladies and Gentlemen, My name is Tom, and I'm a Marine stationed in the Middle East in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and on behalf of my unit give our most heartfelt thanks for your recently received care package. Though I can't individually track down and reply to everyone that wrote, I can say we're all eternally grateful for the time you and those individuals took from the day to devote to Operation Paperback. Halfway around the world feels much less farther from home with Americans like you keeping us in mind! from Balducci to Cussler to Grisham, the Marines will most definitely have plenty of entertaining reading to get them through the next few months here! Though I couldn't find reliable contact information to reply individually, please also pass along our deepest thanks to Joan, Lou, Florence, Marge, Jean, Ruth, Grace, Tanya, Jane, Pat, Vera, Mary Ann, Amy, Luis, Doris, and the rest of the family at Laurelhurst Retirement Community in Columbus, NC as well as the parishioners and children at Tryon First Baptist Church for their kind letter. We truly appreciate your kind thoughts and consideration. Once again, thank you very much for what you do. It means the world to us. God Bless, Happy Holidays, and Semper fidelis!
