Hello Miss or Mrs Betty Alexy,

Thanks for your kind heart and good will. I received some snacks and other items from you today in the mail and distributed them to our Marines presently on location. They send their many thanks and we all wish you guys many a Merry Christmas. You and the thankless support you provide Citizens such as ourselves here in these distant lands is very commendable.

Merry Christmas……I hope Black Friday was good to you!
