Hi mom , Please thank Josey and Jeff, and Tracey Collins for the amazing boxes. Everyone was trying to claim what is theirs and they all went for the brownies first. Thank you so much for everything you do for us. We really appreciate it and it's all the small things in life that is getting us by on this long deployment. Can you please let everyone know that we really appreciate their hard work and dedication to help people like us. Mahalo from the Hawaii Army National Guard!!!

We will be done with this deployment next month and our replacements take charge this week. This is the contact information for the Chaplain of 230th BSB who can receive care packages from all of you for their deployment. Thank you for all the outstanding support during our deployment. You all by far exceeded any of our expectations and the Soldiers sure will remember all of the love you all showed us. 230th is in good hands with all of you now supporting them. Have a wonderful holiday season!

Thank you so much for your appreciation. It really means a lot to have people back home like yourself supporting us in everything we do. Unfortunately we are not included in the 380 people. My platoon is a lot smaller, only about 30 to 40 people. I received the email from Ciara and will be replying to her email as well.
Thank you again for all of your time and effort put into making us feel at home away from home.

My name is SPC Williams and my unit is currently deployed to Camp Buehring, Kuwait. I was talking to a fellow solider and he informed me that your group was amazing at helping soldiers acquire things for big events.
I know we are going to have a bbq for both Memorial Day and Fourth of July and i was wondering what you could have sent out to us. Anything would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and everything you do.

Hi Jeff and Josey!
We got your box today - thank you so much for everything you sent to us! By far, the baked brownies were everyone's favorite - that put a lot of smiles on a lot of faces, and everyone wanted to make sure I passed along their appreciation. We all want to tell you that we are so proud to have people like your back home, who take the time out of their schedule to do so much for us here. Your selfless actions make our lives so much better over here, it's great to have that taste of home every once in awhile.
Thanks again - tell everyone else thank you as well!

Mr and Mrs Dorr,
We received the package you sent us! I want to thank you on behalf of all of the soldiers here for sending us such a great treat! The brownies are especially a big hit. All of the candy made it here just in time for Easter too. We are all very grateful for the time you put into baking and assembling all of the treats. It is just a small taste of home that will stay with us for a long time. The dart board is perfect too. It will not only serve us well but will be left here to entertain our replacements and others that follow them. I initially contacted you for information and a reference and you took it upon yourself to go above and beyond to take care of us and show that you care. People like yourselves and the little things you do remind the soldiers that the sacrifices we make are appreciated and not taken for granted. I cannot express the gratitude that we feel for what you've done. I also want to let you know that you have helped build our morale and made it that much easier to get through the rest of the deployment. Please thank all those who donated their time, thoughts and all the goodies to show that they care. It means so much to us and it is hard to express how grateful we are for what you do. Thank you for supporting the troops and God Bless You.

We got your package right in time for Christmas! We also got one from you before that, around Thanksgiving, and I just wanted to say thank you so much, and how big of an impact you made on us out here.

Also please say thank you to Barb, Sue, Denise, Irene for baking those awesome brownies and bread. Also thank you to Bugbee School, Trevor Day School, and the Honor Society Students at South Plainfield High School for the candy!!

I was able to pick up your box today and it blew me away... thank you so much.
I have to wait for some of the soldiers to get in from their shift to take a picture and send it back.
I'm truly grateful for your support, it's a blessing.

Jeff and Josey,
Hello! I received your care package today and most of the chocolate held up! The guys here were super ecstatic to see how much chocolate they got to choose from! A few pieces were 100% liquid (no mess!) inside its package because it is still around 110 degrees during the day! Either way, no one had a problem eating up the goodies! I would like to thank you a lot for sending these packages, they are very much appreciated! Also, the letters and stars that were included were a perfect idea. you guys are awesome, keep showing support to the troops, it means the world! Thanks again Mr. and Mrs. Dorr!
