These are thank you notes from our troops that the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project has received for 2013.

December 14, 2013

Dear Karen (Landstuhl Hospital Care Project)Thank you so much for the pillows and blankets.  They came just in time.  Winter is setting in and its a little colder here. Your blankets and pillows are going to a whole new set of soldiers that just arrived.  One in particular went to a young female solder who took 2 pillows to support her leg since she injured her knee.  Shes using it to elevate her leg.  So thank you for providing them.We plan on passing them to our patients as they accept them.  Well again thank you for your support of us.  I hope you have  a Merry Christmas & Blessed New Year.

Dear Karen Grimord and LHCP

Hello from Major O-D.

I just wanted to let you know that your latest packages of pillows and blankets went to D Co, 1-8 CAV.

You originally sent them to Camp Dwyer but I was moved to a different location and I had forwarded them here.

Let me tell you the story. So while I was at the DFAC I sat down with some of the new soldiers to eat.

We conversed and they told me that they’ll be here until April coming from another place that closed down.

They are a group of about 75-100 soldiers. They live in tents and it’s been cold over here so I offered them your blankets and pillows.

They were very appreciative. But as you can see there probably wasn’t enough to go around.

I will work on getting a POC for them and if possible your organization can send them blankets and pillows.

If you send anything here I will ensure that they get to the soldiers in need.

My new address is:

Xxxxx, Xx Xxxxxx
Xxxxxxx Xxxxx at Xxxxxxxxx,

From TF MED thank you so much for your blankets and pillows.

They are really warm and cozy, a reminder that we are supported and loved.

Major O-D

Karen and LHCP

I cannot relay the gratitude I hold for you.  These small comforts from home make our time here easier.  The fact that someone such as yourself has taken time to put not just one but MANY care packages together let’s us know we are always supported.  Even in the roughest weather.  I am at the tail end of my deployment here at Manas Transit Center.  I wanted to make sure that your good deeds didn’t go unnoticed.  Thank you so much.

While the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project main focus is to provide comfort and relief items for military members who become sick, injured, or wounded from service in the Middle East, we also support stateside VA hospitals and homes too. A project early this year was to make baskets for homeless veterans making a new start in their new home. The baskets included everything from towels and wash clothes to pots and pans for the kitchen. Below is the very first letter we have received from this project from Robert.

Hi Karen,

We got the box of snacks and coffee mugs the other day they got snatched up pretty quick the can o’ cookies were pretty sweet. We are moving to another part of the fob soon so my communication may be hindered in the future not sure how good the net is where we are going. I also got conformation that we will stop getting mail as of Aug. 1st and chow hall is closing and going to MRE’s only. I would like it if you could send me a link on where and how I could help donate in the future to what you guys do when I get back to the states there we’ll still be guys like me over here in need of support and I want to give back some of what I was lucky enough to receive. We have accepted things are only getting worse as we stay here longer and unfortunately the enemy activity has increased but we are keeping our spirits high as a team and we all have no doubt we will go home as a team and part of our team has been people and organizations like you and the good people at Landstuhl we never would have had as much to smile about without your help and I for one will always be thank full for all of you.

Hello, Landstuhl Hospital Care Project,

My name is XXXXXX Nero and I was very moved as I wa reading the article that Senator Mark Pryor wrote about Lance Corporal Irvin Ceniceros. My father was also a Marine. He made it to rank of Gunnery Sergeant. My father also gave the ultimate sacrifice. I was young when I got the news that my father was killed in Vietnam.

I haven’t heard of Landstuhl and the “Home Again” basket. If it wasn’t for my social worker, I would still be in the dark about the program. When I was given the “Home Again” basket, all I could say was “WOW”! So all I can say is “thank you and thank you”.

And I know that I’m speaking for those that came before and those that will come after me.So as I come to the end of my letter, I salute you all.

Figured you were getting tired of card board boxes so we came up with this card. (the card is a “Happy Birthday” card) Thank you! The box of towels lasted exactly 28 seconds. The camp knows when we get mail and flocks to the Aid Station. Your generous support is much appreciated and we look forward to it.

Again, thank you for all you do.

Hello Karen,

I Have been wanting to send you a few lines for the last couple of weeks but operational tempo and commo blackouts have made that difficult. I hope this e-mail finds you well and in good health and hopefully happy all of the medics here are doing good. We have had a lot more patients lately but that helps pass the days. We are losing all our civilian support and the few comforts we had are drying up fast already so it’s looking more like expeditionary force out for us the last few months. I know I had asked you to hold off on shipments to us but I was hoping maybe you folks could send us some more shipments we burned through most of our surplus but Thar’s what happens when you don’t turn people away who are looking for a snack or missed chow. Once the civilians leave in a few weeks it will be MRE’s for us unless they bring cooks from some other place but that doesn’t look promising so basically I am writing you to try and get us some food items like you sent us before breakfast items and the like plus the tuna you sent last time was awesome. We have finally realized how pampered we were in some ways all the sugar on the fob has disappeared and so now that stuffs like gold. I am very thank full for all the help you guys have given to us and I understand that sometimes are better than other but if you folks can spare it we would very much appreciate anything you send and make sure as many who can benefit from it do so. We are keeping our and the soldiers we treat spirits high as we can but the deployment is taking it’s tole inevitably hope to hear from you soon.

I got a few pics today of the medics none of us are big on having our pictures taken…….don’t want any proof we where ever here lol. At any rate I sent one of our treatment/aid station/evac team there’s only four of us but we are highly trained and skilled professionals at least that’s what I’ve heard.

I am so grateful for the help you have sent and the continued support you have already shown by your e-mails and future plans thank you again.

I seen the tragic event that occurred in Boston and was sickened by it and enraged at the same time I pray you or none of your co workers had any family or friends involved no one here except for one Sgt. knew anybody participating in the race and he was lucky enough to get word that his friend was ok. The bombing only drives home how important it is for us to see this through till the end the true end where those who would attack us on our own shores lose their ability too both physically and physiologically influence others who would do their bidding the words of Spc. P rang in my ears today

Terrorism is like a virus disease an we must stop it for our children and for all future generations it may be a monumental task but the evil these men do is unforgivable. I know that now more than ever after seeing some of the things I have witnessed.

I hope you have wonderful day and that those soldiers who are there and recovering from wounds suffered here and elsewhere find health and happiness sooner than later thank you again for all that you and everyone there does for us.

Hello Karen,

My name is BV I am a medic currently serving with xx Cav in xx Afghanistan me and my fellow medics received a care package form your organization today and the generosity and kindness within those boxes was absolutely touching. My NCO made the statement “that right there just made my week” and went on to add that he hadn’t ever seen that much of a good thing in one donation before.

I feel honored and thank full that people like you in and out of the Army take the time to reach out and help us as we fight so far away from home the attached memoriam to Spc. Phillips was a reminder of how costly this war has been and why such gifts like the one you gave us today shouldn’t go unacknowledged I took the time to post his story onto my own FB page so that others could read and see that even in our deaths we as soldiers will always be tied to one another as brothers whether we are close personal friends or just serving and fighting for the same cause.

We started handing out the shorts towels and pillows you sent us and tomorrow I am getting with the Chaplin to make sure that those who need them the most can get them we have soldiers in outlying fobs that could use some of the stuff as well and I want to make your donations go as far as possible.

Once again thank you so much for all you sent us and as far as future donations any breakfast type foods would be very welcome as we do not get breakfast served here and just recently came of reduced rations. The kindness you and others like you and your organization show us has been a transforming event in my own personal view of the world I have never been a very trusting person or felt like there was much good left in this world.

That is in part why I joined the Army to be a medic so I could make a difference in peoples lives in a positive way and during this deployment I have seen alot of bad and evil in people but much more good and caring than I ever thought the world had left in it.

Now more than ever I hope that I can use my own energy and experiences to help better this world just like you and those who share your vision. One final time thank you so much and may you have a wonder full year to come.

Sincerely, BV


Saturday, March 16, 2013

Thank you much, Karen. I will say send all you’ve got. Our troops here are not picky when it comes to free stuff. It helps us as a Combat Stress Control Unit to, at least, keep a smile on their faces even in the face of adversity that characterized the environment we currently have. The truth is, every single time your packages arrived and we open it to them to take, their stress level reduces significantly. It is amazing to see their affects change from “sad” to “happy” all of a sudden….courtesy of Landsthul Hospital Care Project!!!

Anyway, I was just given you an idea of what usually happen after we receive anything from you. The rest I believe you could imagine yourself.

Hi Karen,

The hoodies arrived today (that are postmarked February 26th).

We read the tribute to Airman 1st Class Jesse Samek.

We’re so sorry for his passing.

He sounded like a fine young man who we would have been proud to know and are prout to ahve served with.

it gives the hooded sweatshirts special meaning to us.

Personally, I was saddened and taken by his mother’s statement that some days she felt like she had to force herself to keep on breathing. I have had that feeling myself and was trying to explain it to someone today.

Please thank her family for their generous and thoughtful gift to us, especially for sharing the story of her son with us so we can hold a bit of him in our hearts as well.

God bless.

Hi Karen,

thank you so much for taking care of us.

The pillows are so funny out here.

They show up and disappear from one place to the next – like their leprachauns or menehuene.

The hand warmers have come in surprisingly handy.

We thought it was warming up here and just a few days after the handwarmers arrived, we had several days (so far) of cold wind and rain. The mountains have a fresh coat of snow. How do you do it?

I’m surprised at how fast your packages seem to be making it here. They probably arrive a day or two before I notify you, but I try to write within 24 hours
1. to show our appreciation
2. so you have a sense of how the mail is moving.

Thank you again and again, Karen

Aloha from Afghanistan.


Thursday February 7, 2013

Hi Karen,

I just want to let you know that three more crates (that is a better description of the size of the boxes you send) have arrived with blankets, shoes (lined croc like slippers) and towels. Fantastic! As we are covering 4 operating centers, everything goes to almost immediate use. We are very appreciative of all the support. The Soldiers work long hours/shifts and the dust and sweat do not make a pleasant combination.

It’s amazing how you are able to pull off of this together. My Soldiers and I are very grateful for all that you do.

Thank you again and again

Happy New Year!

Karen,

This is to notify you that we received the packages you sent. Wow!!! You should have seen how our troops were so happy to pick out their sizes and preference from the various items the package contained. They all send their appreciation for your time and for your support. All the items we received met each and everyone at their point of need. We decree “more grease to your elbow” and “more oil in your lantern”. Thanks so very much. Do extend our appreciation to everyone involved in the process and movement of these care packages across to us. They are all dear to our brave hearts.

I was informed that your organization was the one to get in contact with to assist me in filling the needs of my Patient Hold. I am a Brigade Nurse at FOB xx and have a 8-10 bed Patient Hold to care for soldiers before they get pushed up to xx and then Landstuhl.

I have sent letters out to different organizations hoping they will sponsor us but have not heard anything back and with the warm season coming things are starting to be a little more active around here.

Will you be able to assist me in providing clothing, shoes and blankets for these soldiers who usually come to me with little to nothing at all? We will be in this area until late fall/early winter. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you will be able to help us.

Dear Ms. Grimord,

From all of us here at xx, Support Operations, thank you again for your continued generosity. The toiletries and hygiene products were a huge hit among all of us. And the laundry detergent we pushed out to the soldiers at one of our distant FOBs was sorely needed.

Thank you also for sharing SPC Tyanna Avery Felder’s inspirational story–she reminds me much of our Class I NCOIC who is the heart and soul of Support Operations.

Thank you again!

I want to thank you for the care package of pillows. My soldiers and myself are having better dreams since getting the pillows.

Thanks again for your support.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful gifts of beautifully designed pillows, blankets, shower shoes, and hygiene products. It definitely made us all in the XXXst BSB Support Operations feel like we were closer to home. It was also an inspiration to hear of SSG Lillian Clamens who gave the ultimate price for our country. We will honor her by following her example and giving all our effort to protecting this country and supporting our fellow soldiers.

Thank you again!

Hi Karen

We just had mail call and another package from Landstuhl HCP/you arrived.

Slippers, a blanket, and underwear!

It doesn’t take long for personal items like underwear to wear out in this environment.

Maybe beating them over the rocks isn’t the gentlest way to clean them.

Thank you so much for taking care of us.

Thank you always and again,

The pajama bottoms arrived today.

They are very cute!

The supplies were pushed out to the Chaplain, Combat Stress Control, the AID Station and one of the patrol groups.

Everyone commented about how appropriate they were for the warmer weather.

Clothing gets a beating out here, either from daily wear and from cleaning.

Thank you so much!

Karen,

Thank you for your email. Sorry that I haven’t replied sooner. I actually just noticed the email today and opened it because I recognized the organizations name because I received two boxes yesterday from you. They were blankets and towels. They are wonderful. I have given many out already. Thank you very much. We would loved to be put on your mailing list. We will be here until mid Aug 2013. Everything on your list of stocked items we could use and will be greatly appreciated by the soldiers. Thank you for your time. Feel free to ask any questions.

Very Respectfully,

Hi Karen,

I just want to let you know that three more crates (that is a better description of the size of the boxes you send) have arrived with blankets, shoes (lined croc like slippers) and towels. Fantastic! As we are covering 4 operating centers, everything goes to almost immediate use. We are very appreciative of all the support. The Soldiers work long hours/shifts and the dust and sweat do not make a pleasant combination.

It’s amazing how you are able to pull off of this together. My Soldiers and I are very grateful for all that you do.

Happy New Year!

Brad

Dear Karen and LHCP

My company asked me to pass this along to you as a token of their appreciation. I don’t know if you’re aware, but we often used what we needed for our patients at the Concussion Center and shared the rest with other medical clinics to give to their patients–so your efforts impacted patients/service members all over our AO!!

Thank you for all that you do!

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely CPT SM

The time you give, the hearts you warm, the smiles you make – Thanks for everything.

Thank you and the entire LHCP team for your ongoing support of our clinic and wounded warriors here in Afghanistan during our deployment. We greatly appreciate your support! As does each one of our patients we’ve treated in the concussion care clinic. Our clinical team is looking forward to redeploying back to the states in January after we complete our mission! Thanks again!

“I cannot thank you enough for the pillows and towels you sent to us over here in Afghanistan. Once I opened the boxes and saw what it was it was not 5 minutes and all the pillows were snatched up, the towels didn’t make it 24hrs in the box. The soldiers loved the pillows and will get a lot of use out of the towels. Probably the most useful gifts I have seen yet. Rest assured many of us our resting our heads on cozy pillows tonight thanks to your generous donation.

Thank you so much for your support.”

New Year

Karen!

Hi!

And Happy New Year again!

It is for us! Three (3!!!) more boxes of pillows arrived today!

The Soldiers love the themes on them! The non-theme are popular too. Besides sleeping on them, their are being used to make riding in vehicles more comfortable. The roads are anything but smooth and you can imagine that the suspension in these vehicles are a bit on the rough side.

I’ll thank you again – especially on behalf of those on the roads with hemorrhoids. We called the chaplain for him and his assistant to pick them up to push out to the 3 outposts around our Operating base!

The video games are a big hit too. Card playing doesn’t seem to be particularly popular.

You guys are the greatest.

We can’t thank you enough for all your kindness and gifts to our soldiers
