Happy Tuesday Friends!
Hi Beverley F,
Good Afternoon Ruth S,
Words cannot thank you enough for the laundry bag you created for me! I absolutely ADORE it!! I am 27yrs old and my family back home in Canberra got a golden retriever when I was 12, he sadly passed away last year in March, but he had a very long happy life, his name was Biscuit and this picture looks exactly like him, it melts my heart. They are the most beautiful dogs!
I hope you are doing well and continue to make deployed personnel feel special with your gorgeous laundry bags.
Lots of love,
Good Afternoon Bridget R,
A massive THANK YOU for the Quilt and Laundry Bag that I recently received. The Laundry Bag will go nicely with the one that I received while assigned to Operations for COVID-19. Apologies for not responding to your letter earlier, I have only just returned back to work after being overseas.
I was lucky enough to be selected to represent Navy, the ADF and Australia in the funeral for HM Queen Elizabeth II in London. The experience and memories that I have gained by being selected for this task, will stay with me for the rest of my life.
A little bit about myself: I am married with two daughters, aged 6 and 3, currently residing in Canberra and posted to Australia’s Federation Guard (Ceremonial Unit for the ADF). I have been in the Navy for 15 years and still get a kick out of turning up to work each day. When not posted to AFG, I am a Maritime Logistics – Supply Chain sailor, accounting for all of the spare parts, clothing, stationary, cleaning gear and other items which are on board our ships. I have served in HMA Ships Melbourne, Darwin, Sydney (Decommissioning Crew), Adelaide and Hobart (Commissioning Crew). I have also worked at HMAS Kuttabul in Potts Point and HMAS Waterhen in Waverton.
The small touches, such as personalised Quilts and Laundry Bags, that come with the community thinking of ADF Personnel, really helps when we go away for extended periods of time. To be able to take something personal with you, adding a “homely touch” to your sometimes small space (eg: sleeping area’s on a ship) is a nice feeling to have.
Once again a massive THANK YOU to yourself and all of the people who are involved in Aussie Hero Quilts, for the work that you do. It is very much appreciated by all of us.
Good morning Joanne H,
I have received my quilt from you. Thankyou so much I love it!!
I really appreciate the time and effort you have put into making my quilt. Yeah my time in IRAQ was pretty busy work wise and challenging when dealing with the local contractors haha.
Hi Jenny N,
I got the laundry bag that you made with the Battlefield Blue Poppies. I absolutely love the design and sits proudly in my room. I feel bad putting my dirty laundry in it, it looks so good. Hope the grandchild is bringing much joy to the family (as children do) and the parents are getting decent sleep ( A luxury with new borns).
I hope you are well and thank you for your efforts in making these bags. The moral that raises when everyone gets their bag is most definitely real.
Dear Joan and Alan H,
Thankyou so much for your handmade laundry bag that I received today.
I’m currently deployed to Malaysia with a rifle company.
I’ve been in the army for approximately 3 years now as a Artillery Gunner and have been lucky enough to travel the country and the world with my job.
I’m originally from Western Australia and currently reside in Townsville where I am based. Even though I don’t get back nearly enough, I make the most of the time that I get to spend with my family.
I’m very jealous of your husbands cars and would love to get a 1967 fastback mustang and one day would love to restore a classic car myself.
We are all so thankful for all the families that send us messages and gifts and reminds us what we are serving for and to continue doing what we do.
Hope your keeping safe and healthy
Until next week keep your letters, emails and photos coming in.
