"may the Lord reward you for your kindness".

Dear Deb,

I would like to thank you for the wonderful care package that we recently
received; it contained lots of lovey things that have all gone to good homes.
I have been reading the bible and found a very apt passage in Ruth 1:8 which
says "may the lord reward you for your kindness".
Benevolence is becoming increasingly rare in this world, and it is humbling to
know that there are people such as you who are willing to give up their spare
time to help other people.
Keep up the good work,

Flt Lt Chris C. on behalf of all the soldiers, sailors and airmen in the
Planning Cell.

p.s. - You have the most beautiful handwriting I have ever seen! You should be
very proud of your hard work.

Good Afternoon Any Marine Supporters,

I just wanted to drop everyone a line and say thank you for the care packages you’ve sent to the Detachment. I know not everyone writes back to say thanks but just know it brightens the Marine’s day out here. To all of our supporters hope all is well in the states. Thanks again for all that you do for us and supporting our armed forces. Marine Security Guard Detachment Karachi appreciates the support, care and effort given to the Marines here. Attached are some photos of the community involvement the Detachment has been a part of. I’ll try and keep everyone CC’d on future involvement the detachment has here in Pakistan. Your families are in our prayers and we thank you for the blessings!

Also If anyone is wondering what we do as Marine Security Guards Around the World…I’ve attached a couple video links to give a quick insight to our Mission.

Mrs. Murphy,

Hi, My name is SGT Tamara S. I received your care packages and I want
to thank you for all you do, it was very surprising to receive a packet from
a total stranger and I distribute everything with Soldiers in need not just
to myself because we are family and family take care of family always. I
have to say that you have a great writing style is very pretty. Thank you
for your prayers< you will be in my prayers as well. I was so excited when I
open the box, Is not my first deployment but it the first time that I ask
for care packages and it really feels great. GOD BLESS YOU FOR ALL YOU DO

Very Respectfuly,

Tamara S.
