Here are some responses we have received from the troops.

"Thanks for the support

I'm the soldier that got the scoot calendar. Nikki looked so pleased handing the packages out this morning standing in the back of the HWMMV, unfortunately I didn't get any pics to pass along to you but I'm sure they're on the way."

"Thanks for the great package of home-made cookies and candy and that really nice Harley Calendar. I've been sharing the cookies and everybody has complimented them. The Harley Calendar I'm keeping for myself.

I also want to thank Elizabeith Kussmieh (spelling?) for the wonderful handwritten card and poem. It was very nice and heartfelt. Please let here know one of us old guys got a little choked up reading it."

CMSgt George Flick 557 Red Horse Squadron Basra, Iraq

"I received the packages you sent. "Thank You" for your kindness and generosity. I will share the items with all the Airmen here at my location. I'm sure that they will enjoy them. We have a MWR tent I will put them in there for all to partake. Please pass on my "Thanks" to all the wonderful bakers that took the time to prepare the great baked goods. I've been trying to lose some weight here but I can't walk past homemade cookies without having few, they are great!!!! I know I can speak for all our Airmen at other locations and say "Thank You" for them also. I'm sure they are enjoying them too."

Parents of SFC Wayne Perkins

"God Bless you and  many thanks from the family of SFC Wayne T. Perkins.  We spoke to Wayne this afternoon and he said they received the 14 boxes that you folks sent to them and the guys were so grateful for the cookies, fudge, etc.  Wayne said a lot of them had tears well up in their eyes and some of them fell to their knee's and thanked God for people like you and the motorcycle club. You are truly God's earth angels and we appreciate everything that you do for our soldiers.  The guys right now are starting to lose focus and they are getting on each other's nerves.  If they could get some downtime, I am sure they would be okay, but Wayne said that they do not get off of the post at all and since they are only 15 miles from the Iranian Border, half the time they do not get their one hot meal a week and they do not get their fresh water for a week at a time.  We thank you so much for caring.  God Bless and much love from the family of SFC Wayne T. Perkins.  Please pass our appreciation on the the club members.
