It was one of the biggest years yet for Christmas In A Box.  650+ boxes off to our KS troops away during the holiday season.  Here's a sampling of some notes we got back.  `Merica! 




Good Morning,

I am currently stationed in Kuwait with the 123rd Brigade Support Battalion out of Fort Hood, TX. I just want to take the time out to say thank you for the boxes. My Soldiers get so excited when they receive a box and it really makes their day. It is difficult being away from friends, family and loved ones this time of year and little things really boost their spirits. We appreciate all that you do for the Troops and we are grateful. AgainJJ, Tiny and everyone with KFDI

I received 23 care packages for the Soldiers in my unit today. I want to be the first to extend our deepest heartfelt thanks to you and all of the volunteers who sent these out. The Soldiers of 1st Platoon are ecstatic! You have made their holiday season, just a touch more like home.

Very Respectfully,

Dear KFDI,

I am writing you guys from overseas first and foremost to THANK YOU GUYS for the care packages that we received from you guys and the awesome people at Wichita, KS.  My soldiers and I were part of the group of soldiers who were blessed by the awesome packages and we are so thankful and appreciative of the awesome gesture.

Second, we wanted to wish you guys an awesome Holiday Season.  From all of the guys at the 123rd Supply Support Activity (SSA), thank you and enjoy the Holidays!!!!

Thank you so much for the care packages you sent to military overseas!  My
crew and I were able to use some items that were sent.  Please send our
appreciation and gratitude to those who donated.  It definitely lifted our
spirits.  We hope you have a Merry Christmas!

Hi this is Specialist Randall from D-Co 3-187. I just wanted to let y'all know that my platoon and I received all of the Christmas packages today and we couldn't be more grateful. It's so awesome that kind hearted people take the time out of their busy schedules to think about us soldiers on the holidays. These gifts mean more to us than I'll be able to express. Thank you so much and God Bless.
