A letter of gratitude and love

To the editor:

I would like to share the following letter of appreciation:

Dear Operation Open Arms & Capt. GiddyUp:

In my 19 years in the U.S. Army, me and my fellow U.S. Army Soldiers (Battle Buddies) have never quite met a friend like OOA.

When we wanted to go fishing, Operation Open Arms accommodated 32 of us on one boat. When one of us was being deployed overseas, OOA set up a great going away party at Matanzas Restaurant for all of us. We didn't have to spend a dime except for drinks of course, but we had a great time saying goodbye to each other and one of our own as he was reassigned to Germany for a three-year tour.

When Easter came around, so did Operation Open Arms with gifts of free hams for all of us.

Operation Open Arms has given our Troops their unconditional support no matter what the cause or situation might be. On behalf of my Army brothers and sisters, would you please accept this simple "Thank You" from all of us.

SFC Eric James

U.S. Arm
