Way to go PMF. Thanks to everyone who helped sort, pack, and transport these boxes of love from home for our troops serving overseas this Christmas. A big thank you to the community for their generous donations as well as for writing letters and Christmas cards for these Soldiers and Marines. We could not make this happen without your support.

I was overwhelmed by the efficiency, donations, generosity and spirit once again for packouts for our troops and am honored and humbled to be a participant. Ditto, dear Snapshot! Thank you to everybody who helped make this possible for all our troops for Christmas. Amen!

Thank you to all who came out to support and to those who gave donations for our Pleasanton Military Family Xmas Packout. I am proud to live in a community who deeply cares for our troops. Our PMF sincerely appreciates all the support that we receive, because of this support it allows us to care for our brave men and women out there in harm's way. Semper Fi

This story inspired me to re-watch White Christmas and Born on the 4th of July.
