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

Thank you notes

"Thank you, Yvonne, for your recent donation of Soduku Puzzle books. The donation you have given will be utilized in the way you have specified. Donations to the Department of Veterans Affairs incur no administrative charges and are used to directly benefit our nations veterans. Donations such as yours make a significant difference in the lives of our veterans. Without your support, the care we give would be less than our patients deserve.

"Good afternoon. I just wanted to write and thank you for all of the books to date. They have been a great addition and greatly helped the students. I would like to go ahead and discontinue enrollment at the end of the month. I'm going to pass off the contract information to my replacement when I leave to another position in a few months in case the future students have some interest in books. Thank you again for your time and effort! V/R John H"

"Hi! My name is Olivia L. I just wanted to send a personal message thanking you so much for the books my daughter received in the mail. It really made her day (and mine!) Her daddy is currently deployed and has been on a ship for the past few months and not able to talk to her, so she was incredibly excited to receive some mail today. Especially since it contained her favorite things (books about animals!) she was so happy she said she would share them with her baby brother, except for the one about the panda bear, that one is her favorite. My husband was deployed 2 weeks after our son was born with only one week of notice before he left. I had just finished up a 2 month hospital stay with my pregnancy and my daughter was just settling into having us both home and getting used to sharing us with her brother when her whole world got turned upside down. I just wanted whoever donated their time into packing this shipment for my sweet Vivianne Linda to know that they gave her a reason to smile today and she doesn't do that as often as she used to. So thank you. Your kindness didn't go unnoticed. I think the name on the paper said "Christy Honeywell" but I may have the first name wrong. Thank you all again. I think your free book program is a wonderful and beautiful support program. Keep up the good work. Military families like ours do appreciate you. Many blessings and a lot of love Olivia L"

"I would like to take a moment to thank you and your kind generosity or time, spirit, and literature. Your donation has not only lifted my husbands spirit, but my children's and my own. Books that we have already read or did not fit a genre have been passed on to other military families, The American Red Cross and USO at the Hospital here at Fort Gordon, and finally, the Fisher House here at Fort Gordon. Your act of kindness has reached so far here at Gordon and their are so many that have felt your love. Thank you. "
