"Thank you for all that you do. I was formerly the Bravo company commander here and met your husband and yourself on a couple of occasions. You helped out a Warrior and his family in need during the holidays. Your efforts are always very appreciated by the Warriors!"
MAJ Marc S., Warrior Transition Battalion, SAMMC
"The World is lacking people that have the caring , compassion, and the human touch that you both have. I would like to personally THANK each and every board member that made this possible."
SSGT Shawn G. (Retired/Wounded Soldier)
"I never really imagined that we would receive such a generous donation. Thank you is far from being worthy of expressing how grateful we are. Part of me feels as though that amount is way too high to accept from your organization. You may be a small organization but you have demonstrated how truly large your hearts are and your unwavering devotion to our troops and their families."
Christi P. (wife of a wounded soldier)
"I want to tell you that your organization rocks! I really appreciate you coming by making our WTs smile.
With great appreciation,"
MAJ Jenn F.
"I really enjoy every time you all come to visit me. Even though the food was late it was still warm and good. But there wasn't a problem with it being late. Guess I'll have to wait to see all those pretty smiles and happy faces until May. Well you all take care."
"I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for the check that you sent to the PAT Team at BAMC for my husband and I. It couldn't have come at a better time for us, as we have been having a lot of financial difficulty. This truly was a Blessing for us, and we thank you from the bottom of our heart. God Bless."
"It means so very, very much to me to hear from you. You'd be surprised to learn that there are so many people out there who have no idea what a military family goes through, and I know I have so very much to be thankful for, and indeed I am very grateful for what the Lord has given us. I know prayer works, and I know that the Lord has a special plan for our son Kevin and I know that God has spared him for a reason..... and for that I am so thankful..... and I am thankful to the Lord for what you are doing to support America's brave men and women that serve this wonderful country of ours."
Terry H. (Proud Army Mom of a Wounded Soldier)
"We want to Thank you all so much for the Thanksgiving dinner. It turned out to be great. We even had a second feast on Saturday and invited more military families. Please forward this email to everyone that took part in making this thanksgiving special to our military families."
Lilly (Wife of a wounded Marine)
"Thank you so much! You guys are great people who give all of yourselves to help others. Hopefully, when I get situated I would like to start to contribute once I start to receive my retirement pay. I wish that I could become half the people you guys are to help other wounded warriors because without your help there would have been times my family would not have made it!"
Devin (a wounded soldier)
"Dear Operation Military Embrace,
My name is Pamela W., mother of Johnathan R. injured in Afghanistan and a Marine. You all purchased shoes for him while he was in the hospital. I would like to thank each and every one of you for all your services and everything you did for us. I would like to keep in touch with y'all. You are the sweetest people I've ever met."
"I also wanted to thank all of you for your generosity during this holiday season. Because of your help, I will be able to get home to be with my family this Saturday for Christmas and the New Year. Thanks is not enough to say for what you have done for me and my family. Should I get to stay in the Army, I will now be able to afford to move them down here to San Antonio with me which is priceless. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. God was gracious enough to bring your family into my families life and change it in ways I did not think were possible just a week ago. Thank you so much for all you do for our soldiers, and those like me that seem to fall between the cracks. I am eternally greatful to all you!"
God bless, Jeff C., SPC US Army (wounded soldier)
"To all the members of Operation Military Embrace:
Last Saturday, Dec. 4, you visited my son, William David J., at Brooke Army Medical Center. And, we want to thank you for all the gifts you gave to him and myself (Mom). Your support and encouragement & your prayers are very appreciated! Thank you for ALL that you do for our Soldiers."
Paula and David J.
"I think it is such a blessing to have people like you to call my fellow Americans. And when I am outside of the wire, people like you are what make all the tough times worth it. You have my little brother Devon on your banner. I am here in Afghanistan, and it is an honor to do what needs to be done here so that our homeland stays free. God bless you all, and may God bless America."
"You guys are the greatest and I just want you to know how much we appreciate you and the whole gang. We look forward to your visits. We act like little kids going to see Santa. Just seeing your smiling faces help ease the tension and stress for at least a little while and even for some time after you leave. I know that Michael and I do a count down awaiting your arrival. It feels good knowing that someone really cares about us and our situation here at BAMC or even remember us."
Love, Barbara (Mom of a wounded soldier)
"Your gifts to us have been so thoughtful. The last batch of diapers and wipes will come in handy for a while! I know how much those boxes cost and we are very grateful for them! It saves us a lot of money! :) You all have a very kind heart and we're thankful for that!"
"The world is a better place with people like you, people who place others before themselves. God Bless you and your continued selfless endeavors. Keep in touch and if there is anything that I can do for you please let me know."
Very Respectfully, 1st Lt. Daniel M. USMC
"Operation Military Embrace provided financial critical assistance to my family. My combat injuries have prevented me from working and we have a newborn baby to support. My financial situation is still poor; but it could have been far, far worse if not for the generous financial grant provided. Please continue to support this cause!"
