Here are responses from Andrew May in Afghanistan. His unit is receiving the packages you have been sending! (Mail to him has been taking 4 to 6 weeks to arrive. His return replies also take that long.) He's been working on Thank You notes for everyone, but also mentioned he lost some of the return addresses. So please accept this note of appreciation on his, and his troops, behalf. You guys are wonderful to have jumped in and help these troops!
This is Andrew May I am deeply grateful for all the packages that have been sent to us thru your network. I appreciate everything that you have done and so do the troops. I do have a few people in mind that packages can be sent to so that they can supply their troops with all the stuff that has been sent to me. . . They would greatly appreciate some packages to be able to pass out to their guys. Once again I would like to thank you for the work that you do for us.
With Great Respect
SFC May, Andrew
And from PFC Coombs:
"My platoon and I would like to thank you for your care package! Your support is greatly appreciated. We recieved your package this morning, August 25. We are a small scout unit living far out from any other troops and modern civilization. We live off military rations and water, we have a small generator and share a water well with a village next to us. Your box was the first of this month. We have supply helicopters come twice a week and we pray for mail everytime. Your package put a big smile on everyone's face! The munchies were a good change to our daily dret. (loll). We ask you to pray for us and continue... to support the troops! Feel free to send us boxes or letters whenever you get the chance! THANK YOU!!!
Pfc Coombs, M."
