Please take a few minutes to read letters we have received back and see how much your donations have a positive impact on the morale of our deployed troops.
*To give you a little background about my guys, we are a US Marine Reconnaissance Platoon with about 25 members. They are an extremely motivated group who pride themselves on their work out here in Iraq. o say my platoon was excited with all the stuff you sent is an understatement. They really appreciated all the pictures and care packages. It was a huge morale booster. Thanks again for all your support!
* We just wanted to say WOW! And let you know how gorgeous you are, we
appreciate you for sending us those pictures and packages it helped out a lot, gave us
things we needed and it feels good to know that there are people out there thinking
about us, thanks a lot.

Letters From The Troops
*Thanks again so much for thinking about us here in Afghanistan. The care package
sure did raise a lot of spirits here on HQISAF. Please keep up the good work and
don't forget about us during the upcoming holidays! Take care and Hang-Tough.
Thank you very much for everything you sent. You couldn't believe how happy this
made me feel when I saw the box was for me. You put everything I needed in it.
Thank you for the magazine, because I miss reading RODZ. I always buy that every
time I go to the supermarket. And I really needed the socks and batteries. My flash
light last night just ran out of juice and by coincidence your box came with batteries.
You also sent two of my favorite things, beef jerky and applesauce…I'm going to put
all the snacks out for all of us to share. I can't forget my favorite thing…the pictures of
all of you guys. Thank you very much and you guys look great…wow, sometimes I
wish I wasn't in the Army…because I miss hanging out with hot girls and nice rides…I
can't wait to get back home and finish my '37 Olds. You guys really made my day,
week, month. I hope you guys keep in touch and send me a letter once in a while to
say HI. I really appreciate all you have done. Thanks for keeping our morale up and
reminding us that people actually remember us at home. Thanks again, Love you all!
*I just received two separate care packages - one yesterday, and one today. The one
today was Christmas oriented. I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! You absolutely
made my day (-: I shared both packages with my Troops, and you made their day as
well. You gals ROCK!!!
Your friend always,
*Just wanted to let you know I received your package you sent to me today and after
a long ass day of work right when I was about to go to bed I heard a knock on my
door, my squad leader handed me a box and said "Who are the Pinup Angels Mack?"
I smiled and gave him a detailed explanation on who you guys are and what you do
for us. I then told him I had to head down to the computers and make sure I thanked
you. He wanted me to thank you also, as I gave him and my roommates some of the
candy and cards you sent because I really hate army dentists =). And also I'm really
glad when I opened up the package and saw the headphones in there, mine broke
today when I was on mission because I slammed the trunk on them when we were
headed out, I love listening to music and was pretty mad when I saw I broke them. I
can't thank you guys enough for the package you sent it really made me happy. If
there is anything at all I can do to help you girls out please let me know. My father is a
pretty wealthy man and next time I talk to him I'm going to make sure his company
helps you guys out so other soldiers can receive packages to help brighten their day.
Best wishes and may you also have a wonderful holiday season.
SPC Chris M
*Thank you so much!
I got the holiday care packages in this afternoon and distributed everything out to the
unit just a bit ago. You guys can't even imagine how much your care packages boost
morale here in Afghanistan, especially during the holidays!
Thanks again so much.
Hang Tough....Capt W
*I just received a box from you fine ladies yesterday. I am Tammy L. in Afghanistan. I
want to thank you ladies so much for thinking of us and sending us care packages.
You gals did an excellent job in choosing right things for the packages. We all love.
Happy holidays, and if ya'll need something please let me know. Take care.
*Thank you for the care package and all of the photos. I don’t receive a lot of mail, so it was a good way to end the day. This is my second tour in Iraq. I’ve been here for 11 months so far this deployment and 23 months total. I have two more to go and I’ll be done. I then get out of the Marines in April. I can’t wait to get out and be able to go back to school. It has been a long journey. Thank you again for the support. Cpl Shane K.
*Thank you so much for what you all are doing in support of our troops overseas. Having the support of our friends and families at home is very re-assuring, and makes us feel good about what we are doing. Keep up the good work. Sincerely, SSgt. Cory B. US Marines
*Thank you for sending us the care package. The guys have put your postcards up at our desk, and morale is noticeably up today. It is nice to have little touches of home around and to see American faces as we look toward the holidays. I am proud to be here, working with some of the finest people I’ve ever known. Thank you again for your support and your kind words. Sincerely, Katherine B.
*I just wanted to thank all of the Pinup Angels for supporting all of us who are over here in the Middle East and away from our friends, family, and homes over the holidays. Merry Christmas! ~Rodger W.
*Thank You A Lot! ~Spc Jeffery W.
*Thank You so much for the care package! It was a very nice surprise. Hope to chat with you all soon. Merry Christmas! SPC Shawn R.
*Thank you very much. All you girls are beautiful and sweethearts. The packages was awesome! Joey
*Thank you so much for the package of goodies. My team and I enjoyed them a lot. Thank you for your support. We could not do this without your support. Keep the faith and support for us. T. L.
*Thank you so much for all the care packages you sent. My friends and I were amazed at all the snacks and things. We especially enjoyed the pictures you sent. You are all very pretty girls. What we really appreciate more than the material things is what they represent. They represent your care and support for what we do and that makes all the difference to us. Thanks again from all the guys in E Co Maintenance Platoon. Yours, Marcos
*I received your care package yesterday and wanted to thank you. Troop support is a big deal for me too. You see, I started this little book/calendar project called Pin Ups For Troops a couple of years ago. It’s always touching when someone actually cares about us. Thanks for the support & love. RDFL, Roger www.pinupsfortroops.com
*You ladies “Rock”. Thanks for your support. It’s nice to hear folks like you take the time to take pictures and put packages together for the troops. We are grateful for every box that you have sent. If there is one thing this war is worth fighting for…it’s you. You and all the other folks that make our country so great. Thank you so much for taking the time. Fighting for you always. Patrick B.
*Thank you for the gifts. 2nd Recond Bn in Iraq. Thank you for your support.
*I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I am a sailor serving as a field medical tech for the Marines in Fallujah, Iraq. With Love, HM1 B. “Navy Combat Doc”
*Greetings from Iraq, Some of our folks received your care packages and I just wanted to thank you for your support and everything you do for us. It is uplifting to know that beautiful young ladies back at home still care about the troops no matter what their personal politics might be. Unfortunately, the general consensus here, and in the military at all levels, is that the country is against both the war and the nation’s warriors. It means so much to all of us here. However, all of your items were shared and the news of your efforts went everywhere. I hope that you all have a great holiday season and the merriest of Christmases with swift fulfillment of all of your families’ New Year’s wishes. If you are ever in Iraq, we will have your back. Most respectfully, Capt. Adam K.
