My husband recently came through Portsmouth on his way to Afghanistan. Even though their flight was after midnight, he said there were still over 100 greeters there cheering them and giving them support. It really meant a lot to the soldiers, and it means a lot to their families that our soldiers are not sent off to war without feeling loved and remembered. Thank you for what you do and God bless you all.

Dear pease greeters,
I want to thank you all for your warm welcome in New Hampshire on October 15th.
We were very surprised to see all the people standing there and although we came back from a course (Belize jungle training) instead of a mission you were just as enthousiastic.
Thank you all for the unforgettable experience.

I can't thank you enough for your kindness. My husband just received your greeting in New Hampshire. This is his first deployment and because he is part of a Joint Task Force PRT they didn't have a formal sending off for the families. He called me from the airport telling me your support and kindness brought him to tears. Thank you for supporting our troops and for giving my husband an extra boost of encouragement! It means more than I could express in words.

I wanted to thank you for what you did for our son today when he returned from his most recent deployment. He was literally moved to tears by your hospitality plus meeting President and Barbara Bush. It is nice to know some communities still appreciate our men and women in uniform. My wife and I will always cherish this call from Rob this evening and the kind words he shared about you folks.

My son is in Afghanistan at the moment and I was looking for a few ideas for a care package. A friend suggested your site and it turns out to be a very good suggestion. Your doing GODS work. God Bless you and your organization. And GOD BLESS our troops. I will be back to your sight again.

I had never heard of the Pease Greeters until I saw a segment on public television about your group. I was so moved by your group's dedication to making sure every single man or woman coming home from deployment was warmly welcomed - and at all hours of the day and night. Thank you so much for the enormous blessing and pillar of light you all are to so many people. I wish I could be there with you to welcome home our heroes.

Thank you so much for being there when my husband arrived in NH. This is our first deployment and I know it was encouraging to have such a welcome party there before he leaves the U.S. I had spent the evening with other spouses and suddenly all of our phones began ringing, even for the girls whose husbands had left their phones at home. Thanks to you, they got a call when they really needed it.

Please allow me to express my deepest appreciation to the enduring men, women, and family of Pease Greeters. Sometime ago in October 2007, I was on a plane with a team of Air Force Engineers from Ft. McCoy Wisconsin on the way to a 6-month mission in southwest Asia. Little did I know that Pease was our last stop on an American soil. At 2 AM, I was so surprised and elated of the hospitality Pease Greeters had extended to me and to each one of us. Six months later, I came back home to my family safe and sound, "mission accomplished" but I will never forget the journey which took me through Pease. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
