Cakes for Troops 2019

Testimonials from the Troops Themselves

The cake is a wonderful gift to reduce the homesickness many soldiers will experience this coming holiday season. And judging from the heartfelt Thank You notes like the ones below from soldiers stationed in Afghanistan last year, the cake was deeply appreciated – and widely shared!

“I wanted to send a thank you for the cake you sent our way. It was well received and landed at our location on Christmas Day itself. From all of us out here in Northern Afghanistan we appreciate your thoughts, prayers, gifts and support.”
– Platoon Sergeant John H. Bensend, SFC, ARNG

“We just received a dozen Gugelhupf cakes here at Camp RS in Kabul from the American Legion Post 57. Thank you for the unexpected care package and the nice note. These delicious cakes went fast to our US military. I gave one to the German soldiers and they loved it. The Italians were ecstatic as well. They have, and you have very good taste. Thanks again and a Merry Christmas to you!”
– David L. Corrick, Col, USAF
