Good day Sue,
I received 25 boxes of pillow cases today! They are absolutely beautiful! An
instant hit among the first group of Sailors I handed them out to. Thank you
to all who have contributed! I will encourage Sailors to make contact to
express their thanks as well via email address provided in many of the pillow
cases. Tomorrow I will send you a list of who we received boxes from.
Thanks again, and have a wonderful day!
USS ESSEX (LHD2)
We are mailing wave 2 right now.
The pillowcases for the Essex were mailed today.
I'll get the pictures to you as soon as I can. My medical problems are continuing to get worse, so I'm not sure how long it will take to get you the picture.
Thanks Lyn! So sorry about your medical problems. Just take your time on the photos.
did you mail 20 or 25? I had 2 numbers written down
I’m a sailor who’s currently deployed right now and I’m actually lucky and happy to receive a pillowcase which is made by my fellow countryman Gertude M. I, personally love it and it is very comfortable and makes me feel like I’m home. Thank you so much for the support and dedication in making these lovely pillowcases for us. God Bless you and to ALL!
Very Respectfully, ABFAN JUVIKAYE
Hello Mrs. M, my name is Garrett. I wanted to take this opportunity, to thank you for the wonderful pillow case. I chose the pillow case with American flags, and exploding fireworks on it. It fit the occasion! I put the case on my pillow the first night I got it. I wish I could tell you how much it means to receive gifts like these. Especially, while being so far from home! It’s not easy being far from the ones you love, but knowing they’re people like you back home, taking time out of their own schedule to show their support for us, means the world! Please know what you’re doing, isn’t going unnoticed, or unappreciated.
Right now we are currently operating in the 5th fleet area of responsibility. Standing by to make sure the men and women on ground have what they need, when they need it. It’s a beautiful thing being in the middle of the ocean. It offers an extreme level of solitude, and a deep appreciation for God’s wonderful creation!!!
Once again, I thank you for all that do! I hope you and your family, have a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!
Hi! I just wanted to send a THANK YOU to you all for the pillow
cases. I really like the one I picked out; I think it suits me pretty
good. I'm all about the beach and traveling and the pillow case
surely says that loud and clear! -Troie
Thank you To Williams and Debbie for the pillow case, we received them and I cant wait to sleep on one tonight! Thank you for such an uplifting Act ! God bless!!
Hello , I am ABH1 Bxxxx from the USS Essex we have just received your pillow cases and wanted to say thank you soo much for the very sweet gesture. All the sailors and marines on the ship are going gaga over them. Since they are all soo different its like it each pillow case they pick out fits peoples personalities.
Thank you soo much again and god bless Rina
And 2 for Sarah:
Whom it may concern,
I would like to thank you, not just on my own behalf, but on the behalf of the entire Executive Department onboard the USS Essex (LHD 2), for the wonderful pillow cases that received from you.
The mere receiving of the care package brought smiles to the faces of all of our Sailors, and once they saw the pillow cases, in a variety of colors, patterns and themes, it set in motion a fun filled and enthusiastic display of joking, laughter and genuine appreciation for the simple comfort of a pillow case that isn’t rough as cardboard.
Personally, I would like to thank all of you for what you do, and to assure you all that what you are doing does mean a lot to us and it does bring joy to the hearts of all of the Sailors you choose to support. Further, I would like to specifically thank Sarah, whoever she may be, for my pillowcase. I am very grateful and I very much love the pattern and style she chose.
Thank you all again, and my God bless all of you.

I just want to say thank you for taking your time for making those small gifts to us. I totally love it! Especially the one that Sarah made. Thank you for your support. You totally made my day specially for being on this deployment thousands of miles away from home.
Very Respectfully YN3 Erik
