I am the Commanding Officer of the Expeditionary Medical Facility, Kuwait. Our mission is to provide forward deployed, responsive, quality, expeditionary medical care to Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen in the Iraqi and Kuwaiti areas of operation in support of Operations New Dawn and Enduring Freedom. These are extraordinary times in the Middle Eas, and our servicemen and women face significant challenges with high deployment tempos and the stressors of this environment.
My purpose in writing this letter is to thank you, on behalf of my entire team of Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen, for your generous contribution of homemade gift cards donated to us through Operation Write Home. The cards have brought much joy to our team and that joy has been repeated in full measure as our families and loved ones receive the cards in the mail. I, along with my entire staff, have virtually emptied the box of beautifully homemade cards!
Your unique outreach reflects a remarkable sensitivity. Indeed, since 2007, your program has connected thousands of service members to their families and loved ones at home in such a beautiful way. Equally important, your encouraging notes connect our service members to the patriotism of citizens across America. Through your selfless service we know that we are not forgotten and that our service is not in vain.
Thank you, once again, for the beautiful cards. Your outreach has brought much joy to the men and women of our military and their families.
K.J.I, Commanding Officer
