Another ‘Thank You’ from the troops

The following letter was received last month from a medical unit in Afghanistan and signed by a dozen soldiers. They were the recipients of a few packages from the Two Dumb Dames Care Packages for our Troops.

We want to let all those who have supported the project know their donations are greatly appreciated. What started as a few packages sent in October 2007 has grown to nearly 1,200 care packages to date. It would have never happened without the generosity of so many. We thank you!

“It is with sincere gratitude that we are writing to you from Herat, Afghanistan, shortly after receiving your wonderful packages. We are a U.S. Army medical unit, the 28th Combat Support Hospital, out of Fort Bragg, N.C., serving a nine month tour.

Our mission is to provide medical support for our U.S. soldiers, the United Nations soldiers (our NATO allies) and the Afghan people.

We are very thankful to each of you for taking the time to write and send us packages from home. We loved all the goodies! The supplies you sent go far beyond our own use, as we offer them to many of our patients who do not have supplies of their own, as well as to other soldiers in need across our operating base.

Since we are located on a NATO base, united with the Spanish and Italian forces, we do not often receive American supplies, so your gifts to us are greatly appreciated and enjoyed.

Thank you so very much for thinking of us, and for supporting our mission and our troops.

Sincerely,

Task Force 28 MED, Herat Role 2E Hospital, Afghanistan”
