I wanted to send a message out to everyone that has been there to support my platoon while we were deployed.  This past few months has been rough, and unfortunately we've had some casualties during out tour here in Afghanistan but I wanted to thank every one of you for the packages that we have received.  We move a lot and there has been months were we have had to live out of just our rucksacks or trucks.  It was a great morale boost for everyone to get mail and with everyone that sent us something I want you to know that sometimes one of my soldiers wouldn't receive mail from home, but I was always able to make sure they all got something thanks to you.  Sometimes I would put a box in my truck or in my rucksack and when we got a few minutes of peace during a mission I would break it out and share everything that you were kind enough to send us.  Also soldiers from other platoons or troops would sometimes move through our outpost for a place to rest shortly before continuing mission.  With your support I was always able to give a few things to them to make their day better and help them with anything they may have lost or forgotten to pack.

We should be returning home soon so although we greatly appreciate everything sent, they will soon be stopping all the mail to our unit.  If you have items to send us still I encourage you to contact one of agencies and send these much needed items to another soldier somewhere who needs it most.

 
Thank you from myself and all the soldier of 2nd Platoon Bravo Troop 4-4 Cav "Prepared and Loyal"

Col,

We just received your shipment of 15 pairs of anti-ballistic eyewear... YOU GUYS ROCK!

Thanks so much for hooking up my mechanics. Since these are high-dollar items, they're hard to come by and the pairs that we were issued during pre-deployment training are already trashed (6-months later). So it was extremely nice to receive your groovy glasses! They fit perfectly on my noggin! All the guys really know they fully cover your orbital area.

Thanks so much for all that you're doing for us over here. We truly appreciate it.

Most people don't know that  some Air Force personnel are  providing security for the convoys here in Iraq. Today we hit an IED and had some injuries. I had a piece of shrapnel bounce off my right eye. If I didn't have the glasses you all provided, I would have been blind or dead. Thank you so much for all that you do and pass this along to others. I've told all my family and friends to go to your website and make a donation. If I had a million dollars, I would give it to you guys. You saved my eyes so I can see my 1 year daughter when I get back in Dec.

Gratefully,

Sgt. Pat M, outside Baghdad

Hello Everyone,

I'm a Corporal in the USMC, we protect every convoy that rolls out from any base that we can get to. We even support civilian contractors moving through the country. All the Marines are all volunteer Marines who asked to be in the Security Company. There are no sad faces here, no one saying why are we here, or asking to not go to fight the insurgents trying to take our live and have caused others to fall so bravely. We simply ask that you support us and not to give up on us or on the belief that Americans can’t fight or that they won't fight. We Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Soldiers, Coast Guards, and Civilian Contractors are fighting for you and giving our lives for your freedoms. We say thank you for what you do for us and hope you will not let us down while we fight for you. The Marines haven’t lost sight of what were doing over there and we hope you haven’t either.

Thank you  

Cpl Crain

Sir,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your thoughtful giving and time spent on supporting my team during the trying time of this deployment.  Charity is a dying trait in this life, and I greatly appreciate your selflessness.  I thought I would share with you a piece of my world, perhaps it will warm your heart, at the very least maybe you’ll smile.  I was born on July 6, 1978, ironically on July 6, 2006 is when I received your parcel.  Your contribution to my welfare was a beautiful spectacle, separate from the ugliness of isolation that I have been enduring for the past several months.  It’s amazing how one box can reshape a man’s perspective so easily, if not just for one day, in this case my birthday.  Thank you, and thank you for all the support you show my brothers and sisters in arms.

Eternally appreciative,

Stewart H. N., United States Army

I am a soldier currently deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom who works with SSG Jimmy E.  Yesterday we received the care packages you sent to us.  They contained many useful things for us to use out here.  And I wish to thank you for your kind support.  It is nice to know that people do truly care for us out here as we are away from home doing our job as soldiers in the US military. I appreciate the time and support you have shown us out here.   

Thank you,

Sir,

Thank you for the packages you sent to my platoon and me. I am giving the eyewear to my platoon Sergeant so he can hand them out to the rest of the platoon. The other box I'm sharing with my squad. It's nice to have another pair of the anti-ballistic eyewear cause many of us lose or break them. In fact, I know that these glasses work cause we recently had a soldier hit by an IED who was wearing your ballistic glasses. Well, his truck was hit and he was up in the gun turret. The glasses, to make a long story short, saved his right eye and vision. Thank you again so very much for everything you've done.

Sincerely,

SPC Ashley P.

Sir,

Just the other day I received 100 pairs of anti-ballistic sun glasses. Thank you very much.

All of our Air Force airmen are outfitted with them now and we had a few extras to pass to our Army and USMC cohorts here.

They came just in time, as our base was hit by another mortar attack the same day I handed out the last pair of glasses.

I expect you will be receiving some thank you's. Also, within the month your flag will fly over Abu Ghraib...should have it to you by 1 May.

Cheers

Today we received the 25 pairs of glasses.  All the Marines were ecstatic to get them, when I told them you were sending us all ballistic proof glasses they were unsure that anything was actually coming.  As I passed them out it was as if Christmas had come to Iraq in March.  We are all greatly appreciative of you and your company.  Thank you and Semper Fidelis

Dear Col Ledee, 

I wanted to take a little time out to say Thank You from Iraq. I received the anti-ballistic protective eyewear and Under-Armour that you sent just prior to my deployment in January. I want to let you know how handy they have been already. The Under-Armour is a life saver during these cold nights and hot days, and the glasses have proven to be much more comfortable and functional than what was issued. It’s good to know that there are a few folks who do more than display a yellow “support our troops” ribbon on their car. Thanks for backing up the talk!! Your work and efforts is very appreciated by all of  us here.

Hey sir,

I think you all are doing a great service for our soldiers. We are stationed in the forgotten country of Afghanistan, serving in a forgotten war.  It seems that we are the other war and we always hear the main effort is in Iraq.  That is hard for us to accept since this is pretty real for us right here.

I saw what you are doing and believe it is a great thing.  It is a shame that it has to be done this way and the necessary material and equipment is not provided for us to complete our mission by those that sent us here.  I am proud to serve in this military and I believe we are the best in the world.  What we are doing here is making a difference and everyday we see it in the eyes of the children.

From those of us in the 209th Corps, RCAG-N located in Mazer-E Sharif, I would like to express our sincere thanks for what you are doing.

I wanted to write and thank you for the ballistic glasses you  sent me.  Its so nice to know that there are people like you who care about us over  here. I'm sure you know how hard it is to be away from all your friends and family.  Then to be here and its so hard to get things you really need.  The glasses are such a huge help.  Thank you again!!  What you all are doing for us means so much.  There was nothing  I could have done to prepare myself for deployment.  And Baghdad is nothing like I thought it would be.  I'm looking forward to taking mid tour leave hopefully in May.  And I should be back in Texas for good maybe in Dec. or Jan.  I know its only March but I cant wait!! But anyways, I don’t really have a lot of time on the computer as I'm on tower guard today.   So thank you for everything!!!

Subject: Thank you

Dear Sir,

First I would like to thank you for all of your help to the troops who are serving. Reason I am writing is my husband is home from Iraq he was hurt while on patrol, He is a SGT in the U.S. Army and loves what he does, he was hurt by a IED he took a blast to his chest and face if the army would have gave him the proper equipment he would have not been so hurt, his squad has to pass what little equipment around during the patrol 7 vest for 10 people, and being an NCO, he will always take care of those under him. His men under him love him for what he does and the leadership he shows. Which is why I am writing you he is going to be sent back there and he wants to go so he can make sure his men come home. I and scared that he will go back and face the same problem and I can not afford to buy him what he needs: body armour and eye protection, if there is any thing you can do please let me know I do not want him to get hurt again. He only has 3 years to go before he retires. He leaves again in 3 weeks if you can not help that is ok you do so much anyway and if you help just one you are blessed and for that I thank you.
 

* Note: We arranged to provide a set of Anti-Ballistic eyewear and other equipment to all members of the unit in Iraq. *

I truly appreciate the package that Armor 4 Troops Foundation sent to me in the mail. Honestly, I did not know about the package until my mother had told me about it. I was upset that the original got mixed up. I was actually on leave when I found out so I had my wedding and family on my mind, to be honest with you. I just wanted to say thank you for your support and all the items in the package.

Dear LtCol. Ledee,

Wanted you to know that I just found out from Tyler that your package did indeed arrive a few days ago. Tyler was delighted to receive it and thanks you immensely. He said that it was wonderful to have a clean, warm shirt. Loves the utility tool, which he put on right away, and replaced his goggles with the eyewear you sent. His goggles were fogging up and the ones you sent do not. He said that one of the officers told him he couldn't wear them, but Tyler said a Marine Colonel had sent them to him, they were of superior quality, and he was going to wear them. Guess the officer thought it was okay after he heard that!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this for my son. It means more to me than you could possibly know. God bless you! :)

I can insure that everything in the package will be put use and as for the movies myself and others here with me will enjoy the movies.  As for the "anti-fragmentation" eyewear no one in our company received them.  Last I had heard they wasn't going to issue them out until there was enough of them to pass out. 
 
Well my time on the computer is about up so I have to make short.  Thank you again and I would be honor to accept the invitation for lunch. 
 
Sincerely,
 
SPC James R.

Dear Armor 4 Troops,

I wanted to personally write to you and tell you how much I appreciate all that you have done for me, as well as all the soldiers you have helped. Thank you!! I use the under armor & ballistic shades all the time. With the temperatures reaching 120 degrees, then another 20-30 degrees with all the gear and equipment, the under armor makes it a little cooler. 

Being here makes me realize how good we, as Americans, really have it. I just spent a month working at an Iraqi Army compound, and let me tell you, the freedoms & our way of life is precious. We’re making history every day here, but it’s going to take time to get this country turned around. The 8 soldiers that were killed by IED’s a couple of months ago…we had to drive that road to and from Camp Stryker. I’ve seen the pictures of the vehicles involved, a 113 and a Humvee. Both were hit with 500 pound bombs buried under the asphalt. It blew a 19 foot radius, 6 ft deep hole. The Hummer was blown in half. 

We’re now back at Stryker making preparations to move south. Knowing people like yourself & the people you are working with are supporting us & our cause, is appreciated in ways nobody here can express in words. I look forward to meeting the staff when I come home in November and personally thank all of you. Before long, we will be home & this will be a page in my life that will be behind me. 

God bless you & all you do, 

You friend,

SPC. Chad A. P

Dear Armor 4 Troops,

I just picked up your package this morning at the Post Office and handed the stuff out to the boys. They loved the knives, and wanted me to express their appreciation. I told them I would, but that I wanted them to write you themselves and thank you, so I am taking your email address in tomorrow, I forgot it this morning.

We have been very busy at work, running 1,000 MPH trying to get everything done, so I have not had to much of a chance to write or find any new pictures to send. I have not forgotten.

Well, I still have things to do so I will close for now, again, thanks. Take care.

From: Betty C.

Thank you so much for what you are doing, for the troops.  My Son-in-Law wears a large, and if you could send a couple extra protection items to keep sand out of their face that would be great.

When I asked the other day what I could send to him and a few of his buddies, the request was Boxers, AA batteries and the face protection.  I also sent some crossword puzzles and magazines.  I know that's not a lot, but if we all do a little it will turn into a lot. Just like the two fish and 5 loafs for bread.

I will pass all this information on and will CC you as well.

Again I am most grateful,

Betty C.

From: Sgt. Rob O.

Dear Armor 4 Troops,

I was given your business card in the mail by my mom who said that Armor 4 Troops Foundation was willing to help out Marines like myself who are in combat zones with Under Armor gear.  Currently I am deployed in Jalalabad, Afghanistan with my unit (2/3) and will be here for at least for another 5-6 months.  The temperature here can skyrocket up to 132 degrees easily on any given day around here.  All I have to wear are the 100% cotton T-Shirts, underwear and PT shorts that are given to us to wear.  I was hoping on getting whatever it is that you can help me out with to make this
deployment any more bearable. If you would please reply back to me whenever you can and let me know what it is that I need to do on my part. Any help that you can give would be greatly appreciated.  That Under Armor gear would be greatly beneficial and there is NOWHERE out here to purchase any at all.

Thank You,

A Marine in Need

From: Linda S., Mom of a soldier serving overseas

Thank you for your generous offer to send under armor to my son, Nick,  who is serving with the 48th brigade.  He took two shirts with him that he purchased with his own money.  As far as I know he has not been issued any by the army.

Every time I have seen someone from your organization collecting money for our troops overseas I have given money.  I know that this benefits our troops and now you are proving this by helping to support my son. 

In some of our conversations he has commented about the heat.  One time he said that it was 120 and that in his uniform with all the packs and bullet proof vest he must wear that it was much hotter.  One day when he came in he had heat blisters all down his chest from wearing all that he needs to protect himself.

God bless you and thank you for all the help you and your organization provide for our troops overseas.

From: Christy F.

Hello-
About a year and a half ago I happened to be coming down the exit off of Town Lake Parkway and saw you taking up donations. I was very proud to see someone volunteering their time for such a good cause. Now, a few months later, my husband has been called to Bagdad as part of the Gainesville Infantry Unit. He will be there for a whileand has been there for about 3 months already. I read all about what your time and effort has contributed to so many soliders already. I give everytime I see you at the Wal-Mart. I hope that you continue to do what you do. I really appreciate you. Anything to make the lives of our soliders better and safer is well appreciated.
God Bless

Alex, my cousin, has put me into contact with you. My name is SFC H., Jerry; I am a Platoon Sergeant with 1st Plt, B Co, 2-502nd Inf Regt, 101st ABN Div (AASLT).

I would like to start with expressing my many thanks to you and your organization in all that you do, have done, and I am sure will do in the future for our men and woman fighting overseas.

I would like to also thank you for the protective eyewear that Alex has passed on to me. Protecting our eyes is ONE of many challenges facing my boys as we are preparing to return to Iraq here in the very near future.

As we return and begin operations, I would like to support you and your organization in any way I can. I would like to send pictures and testimonials from myself, and the boys of 1st Plt, using the items that you have provided. If there is any way, I would like to be able to receive additional protective eyewear for the rest of 1st Plt, again, this would be greatly appreciated. I have 36 young men returning to Iraq with me. For a few of us, this is our second rotation.
This email address is one of the ways I can be contacted, it will be the address I will be using while  deployed. To give you an example of the current situation, I have personally spent over $1,200 in the last month to procure additional body armor. I will close for now, and I would like to one last time thank you for everything you have done.

Dear Armor 4 Troops,

Donna and I spoke to Nick this morning and he has received the package you sent. He and his unit thank you for your generosity and cause, and are totally "psyched" (their word) about the glasses. Nick is almost as happy to get the goggles as the glasses and says that they are superior to anything previously issued. They plan to take a photo to send you. Donna and I wish to send our sincerest thanks for your outstanding and unselfish commitment. We appreciate and applaud your efforts. Keep it up.

Regards,

Nick Nigro and Family

Dear Armor 4 Troops,
 
My name is Petty Officer Daniel S. I think you met my brother Steve and he told you about me going back to Iraq here shortly. So you sent him some glasses. Well I received the glasses and I just want to say I appreciate that so much. To me that is like receiving a pot of gold. My position on my team is humvee #1 50 cal. gunner. So believe me these glasses are sweet. I'm just writing to tell you thanks very much and you mentioned something about under armour shirts. I would love that. So if you get a chance to send me some that would be great. The shirts need to be brown. Size large in the loose gear and xl in the tight gear. I think they call it heat gear and cool gear. If you got any masks or anything for wind that too. If you would. gloves will work too. Whatever you can do let me know. I leave for Fallujah, Iraq pretty soon. So the sooner the better. E-mail me back and let me know whats up. Thank you so much.

Good afternoon and Happy Memorial Day to you.  With the close of another day here in Iraq, we have begun our turn towards the later half of our deployment.  The attitudes and morale of the Marines are as upbeat and positive as the day we first arrived.  It is in no small way attributed to the great service and support that you and your foundation have provided us.  We all look forward to the completion of our tour and the roar of the crowd from our families and loved ones.  The Marines continue to serve with pride.  Semper Fidelis

Dear Armor 4 Troops Foundation,

Let me first thank you for the wonderful support and prayers that you provide for us and all troops.  I am Master Sergeant C., the direct supervisor for Sergeant S. He has received your boxes, and the items are well received and put to good use.  It is truly amazing what a few things from home will do to perk up the morale of the young troops, as well as the older ones like myself.  I also wish to extend my personal thank you for the items.  As a lover of popcorn, I will never be left wanting for some.  The Leatherman tools were the most pleasant surprise, and will serve us long after we leave this area.  I have placed mine in my “hit and run” bag for when I fly.  I am fortunate to be able to lead such great Marines in today’s battle and I am profoundly proud of them and their accomplishments.  It is with the love and support of such great people and organizations such as yours that we will persevere and come home victorious.

Respectfully,

Leonard C.,MSgt    USMC

Thank you very much for your support.  My fellow Marines and I have been enjoying the packages immensely.  The Leatherman multi-tools and sunglasses were especially nice.  The guys here love you all for it.  I just wanted to express my appreciation to you personally.  There will be other Marines, who are probably better at writing and speaking, sending you thank you letters.  Thank you once again.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day is a solemn, yet sad occasion honoring the American soldiers who gave their lives in war. It is also a hallowed day, because the values those Heroes fought to defend form the essence of our country, freedom and the rights of the individual.

In a time when so many of America's public officials pay nothing more than "lip-service" when it comes to honoring our Fallen Heroes, it is with great pride that the Armor 4 Troops Foundation invites all of our visitors to join us in saying "Thank You" to State of Georgia Representatives Charlice Byrd, District 20 and Chuck Scheid, District 17 and Woodstock, Georgia Mayor Bill Dewrell for their genuine respect and continued support of all of our American Heroes and their families, both past and present. LtCol Ledee was "Guest of Honor" for the City of Woodstock festivities.

Each of these leaders felt that it was more important to take the time out of their busy schedules to join with hundreds of patriotic American citizens on Memorial Day, 2005, (in very wet weather, by the way) to honor and pay their respects to our Fallen Heroes, than it was to find an excuse to just take the day off for personal pleasure.

A breath of fresh air, don't you think?!
