Thank you so much
for demonstrating your concern for the Merchant Mariners and Sailors
aboard the USNS Bridge with your thoughtful gifts!
As the Officer in Charge of the embarked Detachment, I'm particularly
appreciative; anything that brings smiles to my detachment member's faces,
gives me great pleasure as a leader. My officers and sailors work hard, in
remarkably challenging conditions, keeping our two helicopters operating
properly and flying missions day in and day out.
Your efforts indicate that you understand, fully, how important support
from home can be when while we're deployed. It's not only the thought that
matters, of course, your gifts are wonderfully practical as well. While
temperatures may soar outside, berthing tends to be chilly. Most of my
sailors now sleep in knit caps, and booties and love them.
I've attached a photo of some of my pilots hamming it up in their caps.
You clearly made their day!
Thanks again for your support!
