" I want to tell you a little bit about what my unit is responsible for here in Afghanistan. We are up front on the ground searching for IED’s. That is the greatest threat we have here. This place is not safe and it’s very dangerous. The summer is here and it is HOT and DUSTY.You have made a tremendous difference in the many lives of our military through your generosity and hard work."

U.S. Navy Seal Team VI, whose members killed Al Qaida leader Osama Bin Laden May 1 in a daring nighttime raid on the terrorist leader's Pakistan compound, has paid tribute to Operation Shoebox New Jersey for its ongoing efforts to send personal care packages to US military personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan. These specially-embroidered caps, showing the Seal Team VI insignia and embroidered with Operation Shoebox New Jersey, were received recently in the mail from overseas. The package did not include a return address.
