As in the days of our Forefathers, a brave few stand between civilization and that which threatens it. Thanks to you, our Freedom is protected! Thanks to you, we are safe in our homes and in our homeland! Thank you for your courage and your service - it is deeply appreciated! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all - our heroes!
Hi! My name is Amy and I would like to thank you for all that you do for this great nation of ours. It wouldn't be nearly the beacon of hope that it is if it were not for the freedoms we enjoy. My however-many great-grandfathers, Carter Braxton, signed the Declaration of Independence. Gave up almost everything he owned so that we could enjoy what we now take for granted because he, and all of our Forefathers, knew that tyranny wasn't something to be tolerated. I think that too many have forgotten that we had to *fight* for what we have. It didn't just come to us. It's been instilled in me that our armed forces are those we should be thankful for everyday for they are the ones who keep us safe. They willingly put themselves between us and those that wish us harm. It makes me proud to say I am an American, I am free, and it's all because of those who wear the uniforms of our great military. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you a joyous holiday season. I pray that you all stay safe and come home soon.
With deepest gratitude,
To America's Best~
My name is Christina and I want to take this opportunity to thank you and offer you my deepest respect for doing what you do. You see, I have four children ... that mean more to me than life itself ... and every morning that they get up ... grumpy, hungry, complaining that they have to go to school ... safe from Saddam and other terrorists, free of fear, smiling, laughing, happy ... I have incredibly brave men and women like yourselves to thank -- you and all of those that came before that put themselves out there to protect our future. We pray for your safety everyday and we will continue to lift up our voices ... for all of you ... until each soldier comes home.
Sending you love and season's greetings,

To all Our Military HEROES!!!
Thank you for defending the gift of freedom far from home and for bringing a spirit of courage to our everyday lives. Without the likes of men and women who serve, such as you, the United States of America would not be the GREAT country it is. We will be forever grateful for you and will forever keep you all in our hearts and prayers!!!
Peace on Earth - Goodwill toward All,

To All my Special Heroes, especially my son, Stephen --
Your honor and courage will never be forgotten. You have chosen to serve your Country in a most admirable way. For that, I am always grateful and you have my utmost respectMay the joys and blessings of the season follow you safely home.Son, I love you more than words can say.
To my heroes,
My name is Mary and I'm currently from Oxford, Mississippi. I'm so proud of all that you have done to serve and protect our country and our freedom. I am forever grateful for all the work you have put in to your job of defending America. I truly believe you are helping to change the world! I wish you happiness and a safe return home. Thank you for what you do and for your service. America wouldn't be the same without you!! Have a wonderful holiday season.
With love and gratitude,
Hello; you brave men and women who fight to keep us all safe, I know that everyone of you would willingly give your lives to keep your families safe, but to keep people you'll don't know safe and even people who put you down safe. That is going beyond the call of duty. That is why you'll are so special. Every time I hear on the news that some of you precious people are killed in the line of duty it hurts and upsets me, that is why I joined with other Soldiers Angels to do anything possible for 1 of you or all of you. I know the Lord is looking out for you'll and is concerned about you'll, because HE is the one who opened the door for me to be an S.A. May GOD Bless each and every one of you, and hope and pray each and every one of you come home safe and soon.

Dearest Heroes, All the gifts you receive from us cannot begin to compare to the gifts of freedom and security that you give to us everyday.

Please always know that we think of you often and pray for your safe return home soon. We wish you very happy holidays to you and your families.... and remember, America loves you!!
All the best,

Happy Holidays and may 2005 bring you all safely home.
Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
To our finest citizens--the Military!
Christmas is Jesus' birthday, a time of love and sharing and great joy. A time, above all, for thankfulness! I want to thank you for all that you do to insure that I can say what I want, read what I want, do what I want whenever, wherever and with whomever. Thank you for protecting my right to try to raise my children to be as fine as you are. Thank you for maintaining my right to vote for whomever I please and speak my mind without fear of reprisal to myself or my family. Thank you for giving me this country where I can worship as I please, live free of oppression or censorship and do whatever I want within the law regardless of my race, religion, sex, creed or physical/mental ability.
Thank you for my life, my property, the safety of my children. I don't want to imagine what my life would be without you and the brave men and women before you. I pray daily that God blesses you and keeps you and your loved ones safely in His care. I wouldn't have the courage to do what you do on a daily basis for a nation of total strangers.
Have a blessed Christmas! Happy Chanukah! Joyous Kwanza! And most of all, charmed lives filled with a future of joy and personal fulfillment!
To all the men and women of our valiant armed forces:
The job that you have chosen to do is the bravest, most respected job in the world. I am the child of a retired Navy hero and I truly respect and admire each and every one of you and your families. It is my most sincere hope and desire that you are all seen safely hope in as quick a manner as is possible and until then, know that you are in all our hearts. Also know that all of us here at Soldier's Angels pray for your happiness and health. We truly do love you all.
To all those in the military: I don't have anyone close to me serving in the military now, but my grandfather was in the cavalry in World War 1. I used to like to hear him talk about his horse, and look at his mementos. Of course he didn't talk much about it, and it was certainly edited for a little girl's ears. He has been gone now for 24 years, but being a part of this group helps me remember and appreciate a little bit of what he must have gone through. At this time I would like to thank all of you, and wish you all the very best both now and in the future.

To all the Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen:
You are my heroes, for without you we would not be safe. You are what lets me sleep at night. You are what holds our nation together. You sacrifice all without being asked. You volunteered to protect us and for this you have shown that you care. No words can express how proud I am of each and every one of you and you will never know how much I love each of you.
Thank you for all that you do. I promise never to stop supporting you.
Dear American Heroes,
Because of you and the courageous heroes before you, we continue to live in freedom and safety. Thank you so very much for all you have done in order to preserve the great gift of liberty. Thank you so very much for bringing the people of Afghanistan and Iraq new hope for the future and the opportunity to live in true freedom.
You will always be our Heroes. We will never forget your many sacrifices on our behalf. We appreciate your dedication and faithfulness. Your work has been vital to the security of the world, and you have brought great honor to our country. It is not surprising to any of us that you are the new role models for young people in America.
We are praying for you each and every day, hoping that God will bless you and your loved ones in a special way. Merry Christmas to all of you! And may the New Year be a wonderful year, filled with many beautiful days and happy moments for you.
To All of our Soldiers,
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year. This is the time of the year to reflect on everything we have to be thankful for. This is OUR opportunity to thank you all for keeping my family safe. Words can't express the gratitude that we feel. You are true heroes. Thanks to your sacrifices, bravery, and hard work....our lives are safer. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Stay safe and God Bless.

To the troops of the United States of America,
The efforts you make everyday to keep our country safe are so appreciated and if it weren't for all of you fighting for our freedom there would be none. You allow us to walk down the street waving an American flag, go to any place we please and be welcomed no matter the culture, race, or life we come from. In this holiday season may you be truly blessed and appreciated for all that you do. May God keep you safe and we'll see you home soon!
Anthony, Mike, and Joe,
You are three of the bravest men I've ever met in my life. I'm so glad to have become your angel and adopted you. May you stay strong and safe and come safely. Take care of yourselves and I'll see you! :)
To the brave men and women of the United States military...you have my thanks and my respect always. It is an honor to live in this country, where freedom reigns and where our armed forces will fight for the freedom of others. It is a unique joy to be part of this group and to be surrounded by men and women whose huge hearts and willingness to help have truly earned them the name "Angels."
To Walt, Nigel, Joe, Thomas, Shane and Ed (who always makes me laugh)...be safe. To all of our fine military, and to your families...God Bless You. And God Bless America.
Merry, merry Christmas. May our gift in 2005 be Peace.

The Philbricks in NH
Greetings from home!
Do you know how much we appreciate you? I hope you do. As I dash off to gather with family for the holidays (for me it's onto an airplane from Atlanta, GA to Seattle, WA), you are constantly on my mind and in my prayers. I see service people in uniform in the airports, and I hope that they're headed home, too, but I know in many cases that they are not. Like you, they will be a long way from home for the holidays.
Freedom is such a precious thing that is taken too much for granted. We'd be in a tough spot without people like you, who have dedicated and sacrificed so much for our freedoms and for new freedoms for strangers around the world. That's an incredible gift that we can never return in kind. All we can say is thank you, over, and over again. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and Merry Christmas!
With love, hope, and gratitude,
Proud Angel to Frank and Ryan
I want to tell you that my family and myself are grateful for you every day. I pray for you and your families.

God Bless,Hardy Family
Merry, Merry Christmas!
This year, I have much to be thankful for. I live in a country where I am free to vote, to think and speak as I wish, to attain all that my efforts and education can bring me. I have met some amazing men and women this year, though few of them fact to face. They are the guardians of our liberty, the elite few who stand guard over us all. They are our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines. I am amazed that I am thanked for the little I do, for a few letters and packages, a few words of encouragement, by Heroes that place themselves on the line for me, for Heroes who will endure sacrifice and strife to protect our freedom, our safety, and, unfortunately sometimes, our right to criticize them.
My life has been enriched in ways I can’t explain through knowing all of you, Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and of course Angels.
To all of you, our Heroes, the best of all that is American –
To Cisco, James, David, Michael, Don, Chris, Duane, Adam, Geoffrey, Stephen, Suzy, Ray, Griffen, Andrew, Josh and Shawn, and to the others it has been my honor to correspond with through the Letter Writing Team, Thank You, all my best for the holidays, and I hope that the New Year brings you swiftly and safely home.
To those I do not know by name, Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for your bravery, your dedication, your strength. Happy Holidays, take care, and stay safe.
And to Christian, the Cav Scout I am honored, humbled, and privileged to call a friend, thank you for the wonderful gift of being able to meet you, for the laughter and the honesty. You are a true Hero. I hope that I have been one fraction of the gift to your life that you have been to mine. May 2005 bring you safely home to your wife and daughter, and all of “your guys” safely home to their families. Merry Christmas.
