As you are all aware, Spirit of America's mission is to assist the U.S. military serving abroad in order to make them safer and more successful and to help them come home sooner. Well, the troops want you to know that they truly appreciate all of your continued support and charitable contributions especially over the past several months. Because of your donations, they have been able to accomplish so many projects that have not only enabled Afghan self-reliance but also forged strong partnerships and promoted security and stability in Afghanistan.
Featured in this posting are pictures of our dedicated men and women who have now safely returned home to their friends and family after serving tours overseas. They were more than eager to show some love for the organization by wearing our fashionable swag. And who doesn't love free SoA gear? They were also very grateful for the funding that has facilitated such endeavors as cameras and GPS devices for Afghan Security Forces, meals for female empowerment meetings, solar panels for a women's training center, and laptops for high school students.
Here are just a few samples of what the service members wrote about SoA:
"I wish I had worked with Spirit of America earlier because they were such an asset to our mission... Spirit of America was able to provide instant funding for projects that might seem small but have and will continue to have significant impacts on the women of Nili."
"Ladies and gentlemen of Spirit of America, I would like to thank you for investing in our team's mission here in Kandahar, Afghanistan... Your contributions have allowed us to take our Afghan counterparts to the next level, which is one step closer to total operational independence... It is very apparent that Spirit of America understands the nature of this operational environment and is skilled at identifying, prioritizing, predicting critical needs. Thank you very much for all of your support."
"Thanks again to the Spirit of America for their support to Combat Advisors in the field. Your organization is our preferred weapon system. Your donation of cameras and GPS's has yielded exceptional results in the few weeks since we have trained the Afghans on their proper employment."
Many thanks, SoA donors, for your generosity and unyielding aid to our U.S. Armed Forces!
