"I would not have had any gifts had it not been for you and the Red Cross, and not a letter or card from home, a thing hard to take when all around you are thrilled, and happy^ as they open one gift after another. "Thanks to all" your members and may God bless you each and everyone who gave so very generously." Pvt. Gladys Clark wrote, "May I thank you for your lovely gift which was given to me by our Red Cross Santa in the Fort Des Moines hospital.
