Paying it Forward: A Thank You Note and Donation From a Grateful Relative of a Military Child

September | 2012

We received a donation of $100 from a grateful Aunt, whose sister is a Navy spouse, when she saw the impact that Operation Kid Comfort had on her Nephew.

“ My sister came home from the hurricane evacuation to find a beautiful quilt. It had her in tears to come home to such comfort.  My nephew has had a very difficult time during his father’s deployment and none of the experts on base could help. My sister was told he was too young to know that his father was gone, but we all know that isn’t true. The letter saying it is okay to cry and miss him really helped both of them. This good work means the world to the people you are helping. Thank you.”

Thank you Erin H. for supporting the program so that more Military Families maybe able to be comforted by this great free program during deployment!
