I just wanted to pass along a message to say thank you for the Christmas stockings that you sent to our airmen here at my current deployed location. They really enjoyed them. Seeing that they came from your organization in Wheeling, West Virginia brought a smile to my face. I am from the Ohio Valley myself. I am from Powhatan Point, Ohio and graduated from River High School many years ago. Thanks again!
Gail, Here are the pictures from our party. We had such an amazing time. Everyone was so happy to have stockings and be able to open stuff like they were home. I wish I would have taken a picture of the tables with all the stockings on them. They really brought the holiday spirit to the party. I hope you had an amazing Christmas and an even better New Year's. They are having a New Year's Eve party here. I'm sure it will be fun. I was in a scavenger hunt on Christmas and got third place with my partner. We won Bluetooth speakers. Merry Christmas to us;-) The first place team won Cannon Camera's, I wish I would have ran faster.
Thank you again for the stockings and for the Christmas card. Deby
Thank you so much for the boxes of stocking. The leadership team was able to provide each troop a stocking and Hero Box for Christmas. This holiday season will be unforgettable for us all, but your team made it special. Genuinely appreciate your generosity and time to put this together.
Happy New Year!!
LINDSEY A. MILLER, MSgt, USAF First Sergeant & Section Chief, Network Management 455th Expeditionary Communications Squadron Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan
Thank you so much for the wonderful stockings filled with goodies! Everyone was so excited to have a sense of home while over here accomplishing the mission. We are all very grateful to you and your team! We even shared the haul with our Australian Coalition brothers-from-down-under!

Thank you for the Christmas stocking. It's very thoughtful and quite impressive. I believe your son throughly enjoys handing them out.
Huge thanks to the folks at the Kadena Post Office!!
Hello, > > My name is A1C Kevin Clemons Jr, I am deployed airman that received on of your awesome Christmas stockings. I would like to say thank you very much for it. However in my stocking I received a card from a family of a marine. Now the family did not leave any of their names except for the marines name; LCPL Nathan Smith. The message they left in the letter was very heart touching and I was hoping that you could be of some assistance in locating the Smith family so that I may write them myself. > > -A1C Kevin Clemons If any one knows the Smith family, please let me know!!! thanks
I just wanted to send a thank you for the holiday stockings, they brought happiness to all the airmen here at the PGM shop at Kadena Air Base. Thank you for all you do!

I would just like to take a minute to say thank you and let you know how much I appreciate the stockings that you and all those who are a part of your organization sent out to all of us here in Okinawa as well as all the stockings that were sent to service members all over the world. You truly are a blessing to all of us and the work that you are doing will always be appreciated. It is very refreshing to know that there are such selfless people back home who are so supportive of us and who take the time during their busy holiday schedules to do something in order to make the holidays better for us. Thank you very much and have a nice holiday.
Nicholas Colbert, SrA, USAF PGM Crew Chief
Thank you so much for sending us the Christmas stockings! The Soldiers love them and say thank you! Feel free to share this picture with your organization as an expression of our appreciation.

We are so grateful to you for your boxes; I can't tell you how much it means to a Soldier away from home to receive symbols of the affection of the American people for them-- and these are just symbols, they also have gifts that take the edge off of their discomfort.
These kids do incredible things for the Nation, day in and day out. Their vigilance is extraordinary, their sacrifice immense. We have a field training exercise this week, and then once they come back in from the cold, we'll distribute the stockings, and I'll be sure to take pictures so you can see what joy they bring.
I wish we could give you one Battalion-sized group hug.
Blessings and thanks,
CH (CPT) Chris Cairns Battalion Chaplain
Mrs. Van Vranken,
Thank you soo much!! I appreciate your willingness to support me and my Soldiers. I pray you have a Merry Christmas!!
CH (CPT) Michael Dawson 101 BSB Chaplain, 1ABCT, 1ID
We recently handed out the stockings you sent. The troops loved them and were very happy to receive them. Since they were sown I did not get a chance to look inside. Can you tell me what were the contents of the socks and if possible the cost of one of your stockings? Unfortunately we in the military quantify everything.
We have received the care packages and are very grateful for your patriotism. All the deployed military members who come to our Airmen Ministry Center are delighted with all the blessings your support has brought. The Chaplain and I also bring care packages to the military members who don't have the luxury or time to come by our AMC. Your thoughtfulness and kind heart have lifted the spirits of thousands here in Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan especially during the Holidays. The things that you do have a large impact on the daily grind of the military members. From the long hours at work to missing family members and luxuries state side, it is very comforting to have a taste of home that only you can provide. From the East Side Airmen's Ministry Center and all the deployed Airmen here in Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan we thank you for everything that you do for us. See the attached photos of Chaplain Burk handing out Boatsie's Boxes Inc. Christmas stockings to the Airmen.

My name is Master Chief Paul Davisson, USN. Rusty Jones, Master Sergeant, USA gave our section a box that your organization provided. We were all amazed at the stockings inside. From the 10 folks in my section representing the U.S. Poland, and Australia, we all wanted to give a big thank you for supporting us over here. It is organizations, support groups, and patriotic individuals who we are so thankful for over here that help up get through these deployments, especially around the holiday season.
Thank you very much from all of us,
First, I must say thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wish there were more room on this email to say "thank you" as many times as I need to fully elaborate on my thanks. Your generosity to the Soldiers of the 451st ESC created smiles that will last throughout the holiday season and beyond, making it so "home" is quite a bit closer! It is the kindness of people like everyone at Boatsie's Boxes Inc. that makes the holidays away from America easy. I am grateful to have been a recipient of your thoughtfulness, thank you!
Blessings, Emily N. Taylor
We received our boxes of stockings yesterday and are excited to surprise all of our airmen with them!
If you end up with extras, there is another squadron here on base that I would love to help
I will see if we can organize some photos when everyone is getting their stockings- they will be so happy!
Thanks for everything!
