Shortly after being sent to Fort Gordon, Georgia in September, 2011, I entered the Wounded Warrior Transition Batallion to be treated for non-combat injuries while mobilized to active duty in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. I was fortunate enough to be given a star from a flag that flew over a home in Florida.
As the holidays approach, I have received many small tokens from so many wonderful people whom have taken the time to express their gratitude to us many service members in the WTB. I am making it a point to contact all whom have affected me personally to express my gratitude and sincere thanks during this Christmas season.
I proudly carry my star with me everyday and can not express to you my sincere appreciation to your organization and it's many volunteers for caring and thinking about us. I feel truly blessed to have been the recipient of such a meaningful gift. It is with true honor that I carry it with me everyday, and never forget the meaning for which it stands.
Please relay to your staff and all whom are involved in this operation that I am forever greatful, and wish them all a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the future.
