Good Day Ms. Rosalie Russell,
Allow me to introduce myself, I am SSG Quinzy Johnson the RC East (Afghanistan) NCOIC for a groups of Soldiers fortunate enough to be sponsored through your organization. I say fortunate because it’s an amazing testament to the kindness of complete strangers as we make our sacrifices in service to our Country. We are aware that your organization (the American Legion) is comprised of Veterans and for your service we say, “Thank you”. The blessings that you have given us from your care packages can never be appreciated enough. We are truly grateful! As we deal with the stress, struggles and obstacles of this challenging deployment knowing that there is someone back “home” thinking of us (without even knowing us) helps us fight through it all.
Our unit is stationed out of Fort Meade, MD. I haven’t had the opportunity to visit Chesapeake Beach but I will try and find the time once I return to the States. I would love to meet the wonderful heroes of your Legion and shake their hands. From the publications, letters and newsletters to the food treats everything reminded us of home. Again, thank you! Your “continued” efforts giving back to the military inspires us to want to do more after our careers end. Please on behalf of my team here in Afghanistan, thank everyone within the Legion. It is an honor to know that we are all joined as a military family. You have become our extended family of sorts!
Quinzy A.' Johnson
COMCAM NCOIC Detachment NCOIC
Thanks for your support!!!!
