Thank you notes

"I just want to say thank you for all the books I have received. It is very much appreciated by myself as well as my platoon. We all have been enjoying the new books te read. As it so happens I have been receiving so many that we can\'t keep up. Sadly I have to ask to stop sending any more. Its not that we don\'t want them its just we are running out or room and we have giving lots to other units on the island. I want to say how grateful we are and how amazing your operation is.I will definitely spread the word about you.\r\nSincerely,\r\nSPC M"

"THANK YOU! We received 2 boxes from Operation Paperback for my almost 4 year old son. The box we got yesterday was full of books that were perfect for his age and interests. And, at 39 weeks pregnant, I know these "new" books will be even more exciting to read in the coming weeks when he may be feeling left out. We read a Curious George book at bedtime last night (that I actually can't believe we don't already have!) and he was laughing out loud at it. Thank you for the books and a great end to our day! Your hard work and the work of our volunteers is greatly appreciated! Rebecca H"

"Hello!! I just wanted to write and say, Thank you all so very much for all that you do to support us military families!!! We are currently stationed in Japan and we have received a couple of packages of books from Operation Paperback since being here. It has been a HUGE help for us and we all enjoy reading the books. My son is in the 4th grade and always has to be reading a book at night . . . the books we have been receiving have helped with that!! And, it helps to keep me busy (I've read three new books you all sent to me already) while my husband is deployed. My daughter is turning 5 this month and will start kindergarten in August . . . so, reading is about to start for her as well. Just want to say THANK you for your past and continued support. We would love to continue to receive books whenever they are available for us!! I hope this email finds you doing well!! Please let all of your volunteers know that they are very much appreciated!! Best regards, Piper B"

"To the Operation Paperback Team, I just wanted to send a short note of thanks for what you do for our deployed troops. My unit has recently deployed back to the Middle East for what is the fourth or fifth deployment for many of these fine Soldiers. To find that some of the books you had so generously provided were still available here was truly a blessing. The chance to dive into a great story offers a welcome relief, and your efforts are truly appreciated. Thank you, COL Mike E"
