The San Mateo community continues to show tremendous support to our adopted unit, 1/327 Alpha Company 101st Airborne. The recent care package drive organized by the San Mateo City Clerk’s Office is a great indication of your dedication to our troops. Your contributions of snacks, books, movies, personal hygiene products, letters, artwork, and monetary donations were appreciated by the brave men and women stationed in Djibouti, Africa.
Letters of Thanks from the 101st Airborne.
Our adopted troops were excited to receive the care packages and sent several letters of thanks and gratitude to the San Mateo community. The two letters below are examples of how much these care packages mean to our soldiers.
Dear San Mateo,
Thank you for everything you sent to all of us and taking the time to put it all together. I also appreciate all the letters you sent. You have no idea how much it means to us when we receive your letters and read all the nice supporting things you have to say. I hope to come visit San Mateo some day in the future and come give all of you a personal thanks and tell you how happy I was to receive your package. You guys are the best.
