Dear united for the Troops,
First off, I would like to say Thank you for the care package that you sent with all of the wonderful treats. We truly enjoyed them and it really means the world to us to know that we are appreciated. We have decided to hang the cards that you sent on our board outside of our office for all to see along with the letter describing how your program got started. That said, it is truly amazing that we have wonderful citizens in the world like United for the troops and sponsors that appreciate the sacrifices that deployed Sailors, soldiers and marines make every day. Once again, on the behalf of myself and my Flight Deck crew onboard Harry S. Truman, we appreciate it and its citizens like you that make the world a better place. We ask that you continue to pray for our safe return as we continue our journey defending freedom and democracy around the world. Take Care.
Byrd, Fernando C. LT (CVN75 AIR/V1 FLIGHT DECK OFFICER)
