Dear Ms. Lee:
The 136th AW Enlisted Advisory Council would like to extend our sincere thanks to you – America’s Mighty Warriors, for your Random Act of Kindness donation to our 4th of July event.
Your generous donation enabled us to organize and execute an event which brought airmen and their families together in a very special way. The event brought over 300 people to Globe Life Park in Arlington, including family members of our deployed personnel. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate this country’s Independence Day, than with my fellow airmen and the families who support us. This event helped to strengthen the bond between service members across the 136th Airlift Wing.
Due to the huge turnout for the event we had representatives from several of the 136th councils assisting, to include our Enlisted Advisory Council (E1-E6), Top Three Council (E7-E9), First Sergeant’s Council, Chief’s Council (E-9), and Company Grade Officer’s Council. We also had commanders from various squadrons in attendance.
With your Random Act of Kindness donation we were able to provide 80 Texas Rangers Baseball Game tickets and parking vouchers at no cost to our deployed member’s families. On top of that we were also able to cover all of the food and beverages for the tailgating event. Any funds that were left over from your generous donation, have been utilized for our September Wing Heritage Day Event allowing us to provide entrance and food vouchers for over 150 airmen.
We are so grateful and overwhelmed by what you and America’s Mighty Warriors have done for the 136th Airlift Wing. Your random act of kindness did not go unnoticed and we here at the 136th will do our best to perform Random Acts of Kindness like you have shown us.

I am active duty Air Force (huuuah). I am writing to let you know you and Marc’s story have gotten me through my darkest time. I have not seen combat I have not been deployed but I had a bad knee injury and a few surgeries to fix it. It was the most helpless time in my life and Marc’s letter and story got me through it. Drunk and ready to take my life I constantly watched Marc’s story in history channel to keep myself safe. I love him and one day hope to be remembered like Marc. Thank you
I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Build a Bear event a few weeks ago in San Diego, and I know that my husband has met you several times before. I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for providing us with Build A Bear Deployment Bears. It’s so wonderful for the kids to have this tangible and comforting reminder of their dad’s while they are overseas.
My husband left for deployment over the weekend, and I know that his “daddy bear” has provided our 5 year old with a source of comfort and familiarity already (and he knows that, while he might not be able to see or talk to his dad whenever he wants, he is able to hear his voice through the recording on the bear, and it’s a reminder that his dad loves him and is always thinking of him!).
Thank you so much for thinking of the families and for providing us with this blessing. It really means so much to the kids and to our families!
With sincere thanks and best wishes,
