From the Brigadier General!!!

Dear Operation Write Home,
As part of my duties, I regularly visit Craig Hospital and the Contingency Aeromedical Staging Facility (CASF) at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. It's difficult for me to put into words the emotion that I feel when I visit our wounded. It's easy to be a cynic in today's world - there are many Americans at home that don't spend a passing moment thinking about our troops overseas. It absolutely warms my heart to know that our soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen have people at home who still care bout them as much as you. Your continued generosity means the world to them, and me. Your donations honor the sacrifices that these men and women make every day. Please pass my most sincere thanks to everyone in your organization.

Eternally thankful (thankful underscored many times!),
Jack L Briggs II
Brigadier General, USAF
