Thanks to 'A Smile for the Troops'! Once again, you have brightened the holidays of those serving far from home. Your thoughtful gifts certainly raised everyone's spirits and reminded us that people back home remembered our work in Iraq. Thank You to everyone who helped with providing the gifts! -- Col K, USAF, Baghdad, Iraq

Thanks so much for the Christmas and Halloween candy once again. It was a great addition to the sporadic celebrations we had here within our team. We also, keeping in the spirit of the season, set aside some of the treats for many of the third country nationals that work with us on a daily basis. They were extremely grateful, as they do not often get gifts from their respective homes. Thank you so much for enabling that and allowing us to have such a meaningful holiday. -- Laird, Capt, USAF

Thank you for your kindness. The amount of time and effort you put forward is known and appreciated by all the service members in every branch of the military. Overseas it is easy to feel as if you are on an island and forgotten by the rest of the world, but people like you reaching out make a huge difference. You are sincerely appreciated. Again thank you! -- MSG Rawson

I would like to thank you for thinking of the United States Forces serving in Iraq. We appreciate all that you have done. You have made the Holidays very memorable and we will not forget the unselfishness thoughts and time you put into combining treats and items for us. You could've chose to spend your time doing other things, but you chose to show us your appreciation for us so it is only right that we return appreciation and thank you. As long as we have each other we will always be "1 TEAM, 1 FIGHT"............. We will do what is needed to protect and defend our country, family and friends. GOD bless. -- 1LT Lott
