Subject: Thank you!

George, I received a message from my nephew’s wife this morning.  Tammy had a phone call from Sam and he told her that he had  received the packages from the department and had shared the contents with some of the guys in his area.  He told her that there were lots of smiling, happy faces and he said the packages were very much appreciated.

Thank you for coordinating this effort here at the department.  This is one that can make a difference in the lives of our men and women in uniform.
