I want to THANK your Organization for helping me out about 9 months ago. I have STRUGGLED with PTSD and Depression since returning home from OEF. I met Mr. Bania at the Northport VA and he offered me his card and your Help. “Anything you need give me a call” he said. And I knew he meant it. Sure enough my car broke down and I could not afford the total cost of the repairs. I Reached Out to BOTGNY and they helped me cover the costs and get back on the road. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO FROM ALL OF US WHOM YOU SERVE.
Just wanted to personally thank everyone from Boots on the Ground NY. My team just received our first package from the organization and were totally stoked. It was an immense morale booster and certainly a taste of home.
I would like to extend my sincere thanks for the wonderful (and many!) gift boxes I recently received!! Please share this “thank you” with all involved (Troop 384…) What a great treat!! Speaking for my shipmates, we thank you for your generosity, your kindness, your thoughtfulness, and your patriotism!! We really appreciate the support!! The gifts were used by lots of Navy personnel here at the Role 3 Hospital (MMU) at Kandahar Airfield!!
See pic attached of our trauma team.
I am the one with the glasses and function as a trauma team leader.

I am a Seabee, from Locke (Cayuga County) NY assigned to the 1st Marine

We are drawing down, so the items you sent are MOST APPERICEATED!
Small comforts, and to know someone is thinking of us means more than you
I have attached a picture of 2 of us on a project site. This build will be
turned over to the Afghan Army.
We took small arms fire shortly after this pic was taken. The insurgents are
still very active here in Helmund!
