Hello! My name is SFC Laube and I am the Battalion Medical NCOIC for 1-143rd FA, as well as the Medical PSG for HHB 1-143rd out of Richmond CA. Both my troops and myself have been receiving packages from “Their Angels” and I wanted to personally thank you for your kindness.
Having spent many Holidays away I can tell you that while we are tough, it is not always easy, especially for our younger troops (of which we have many) to be away from home, friends and families. Thoughtful gestures from back home can and do make a difference.
In case they forget to express their gratitude in their youthful state, allow me to speak on their behalf and say “Thank You and and Merry Christmas!”
A Salute To Veteran’s Day was held on Friday, November 10, 2017 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond. A family friendly event for the community to honor those who have served our country to protect the freedom that we all have come to enjoy. At our booth we were happy to provide an opportunity for the community to write a letter of “thanks” to our active duty military personnel or to our veterans which we share on our visits to the Veterans Hospital in Martinez, California.
I believe the reporter was looking for a local home grown organization serving the military and veteran population in Richmond.
We invite the community to join us on the 1st Saturday of each month to participate as we give back to those serving our country.
I am contacting you today because I just happened to be on the receiving end of 6 boxes of care packages from your organization. It was a very pleasant surprise for us especially around this time of year. All of us here greatly appreciate all of the men, women, and children that helped put these packages together for us. I can tell the people that put these packages together took a lot of pride in what they were doing and that they also appreciate us very much. We all here just wanted to make sure that they know we appreciate them just as much for everything they do for us and their families as well. Who knows I’m sure quite a few of them will be taking our place one day. Thank you so much for everything you are doing for us back home, we hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and that you enjoy the rest of your year!

You are a Father, and a Veteran
You stood proud, as a Military man
You served your country over the years
During that time, you hid your tears
While you served, you were away from home
Your children now have families of their own
Time away from family, seems forever lost
Challenges you faced, had a great cost
Marva and Team,
Thank you for ALL of the care packages. My guys and I enjoy them, so thank you. The love and support that you and your volunteers give us, really helps us understand what we mean to the American people. I’m staying pretty busy over here with work. We have a pretty big project, it’s been long hours with limited days off, it will be nice to get a small break once the job is over. Again, thank you for the care and support, it means a lot to us.

I received the package yesterday that Their Angels Military Support Group sent to my Battery. I appreciate all the items that you and your organization have provided for my Soldiers. Please forward my gratitude to the hardworking people that made this happen. Thank you.
