Operations Gratitude is a friend of Charlie Company. Operation Gratitude is a blog that supports our troops. They annually send at least 100,000 care packages filled with snacks, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation addressed to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed in hostile regions, to their children left behind and to wounded warriors recovering in military hospitals or transition units. Their mission is to lift morale, bring a smile to a service member’s face and express to our Armed Forces the appreciation and support of the American people. Each package contains donated product valued at ~$125 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship.
We all know how important it was to receive packages from home while we were in Vietnam.
Since the majority of the Charlie Company readers also support our troops and many of our readers do crafts I wanted to share one of the great posts worth seeing from Operation Gratitude:
