Letter of Thanks to Lincoln Glen Nursing Facility

Coast Guard Letterhead

To everyone at the Lincoln Glen Nursing Facility

On behalf of the mene and women of United States Coast Guard Patrol Forces Southwest Asia (PATFORSWA), please accept our warmest regards.

Many thanks for your efforts in sending care packages and support to patforswa and the forward areas of war. From our cutter and shore side personnel here in Bahrain, to our members forward deployed in Kuwait at Camp PATRIOT, we want to express our deepest appreciation for your cards, thoughts and prayers. Your thoughtful and generous words and cards were warmly received by all and helped greatly to fill the void of not being home with loved ones. Christmas is always a tough time to be deployed, but your donation definitely helped in lifting our spirits and aided us in sending love home during this holiday season. As with most military organizations that are forward deployed, we LOVE it when we can get packages. The smiles and excitement that resulted from the kind words and cards your and your group sent were indescribable. Everyone has expressed their immense gratitude to have received them.

Again, thank you very much for thinking of and supporting us. Please be assured of our highest respect and warmest personal thanks.

Closing:    Semper Paratus,
