Yet that was eight years ago. We've found that support for our efforts has fluctuated over the years; often depending on what's being reported in the news at that time. Some people have even suggested that we stop our efforts since a majority of troops have returned home. Nevertheless, we continue to hear from soldiers time and time again how much the care packages mean to them. One recipient recently wrote, "No matter how big or small the care package, it affects us in a huge way. These packages represent love and support. Sometimes that is all we need over here. The packages make our lives and morale so much better while deployed and help us get that much closer to coming home." And with that, how can we not continue our efforts?
