I am grateful that you thought of me

A letter and photo received from a sailor stationed in the Gulf, dated 16 Dec 07:

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! I am grateful that you thought of me during Hanukkah this year. I was on the aircraft carrier USS [XXX] in the Persian Gulf for the holiday, so it was wonderful to receive your support. Your kindness certainly brightened my time at sea.

I have attached a photo from a Hanukkah celebration on the ship. I was able to celebrate on several nights with the ship’s small, but active, Jewish community.

Thank you again for your kindness!

Best wishes,
CDR S.M., Persian Gulf
