“My heart is so happy after receiving this care package from #OperationNotAlone – straight from Oshkosh, Wisconsin! Our friends and families at home really underestimate the power of the letters and packages we receive – I’ve never felt so loved and supported in my life! THANK YOU Susan Fochs, Director and President of Operation Not Alone, as well as Miss Oshkosh 2015 MeKenzie Lund for giving Susan my name! You ladies are truly angels! The blanket is one of the most meaningful gift I’ve received since being in country…I just love that it was hand made by someone and that it has my name on it! ” – Hallie G.
“My daughter just received her care package from ONA and she sent me a picture of the tie blanket that was included. She’s practically in tears, she loves it so much! She just found out that her deployment is being extended through December and won’t be home for her birthday or the holidays, so this could not have come at a better time! Thank you for all that you do.” – Renee, Army Mom
“This is a little late but I wanted to make sure that you know that all you volunteers are doing a great job. The support is outstanding. Each box helps on average 8-10 service members. Just knowing people back home care means the world to us all. Not everyone who sends packages gives an email address so I hope you pass on our gratitude. Thank you so much!!” – Jim, Army
“I am currently overseas and I received a package this week from you and it a “No Sew” Knot Blanket with Navy decorations in it and I must say it’s awesome! There are a few other sailors here that are jealous of it so I thought I would see if it were possible to request a few more. A little touch of home goes a long way out here. Thank you for the package and for all your support!” – Richard, Navy
“Thank you so much for the blankets. They turned out great and were gobbled up very quickly. We had a few jealous sailors here also. They are very comfortable. I even look forward to using mine back home. I attached pictures of everyone who got a blanket. There are 11 total people in the pictures, myself included. Thanks again…it means a lot to have a little touch of home way out here.” – Hank, Navy
