Connecticut Patriot Guard

Mr. Stone,

The Soldiers of C Company/ 443rd Civil Affairs Battalion, Warwick, RI wish to express our most sincere thanks to the members of the Connecticut Patriot Guard for their support on Dec 2, 2010. I was personally awed by your dedication in providing an escort on such a cold day as we began yet another deployment. Your Guard does great work on behalf of the service men and women of all branches of the military and we are lucky to have such great Americans supporting all of us.

It also meant a lot to our families and friends when told of what the Patriot Guard of Connecticut did for our unit. When told of your activities and shown pictures of the riders on the highway from the bus, our families were extremely grateful and would like to express their thanks and appreciation as well. Many of our family members have seen the work your group performs on the news, but to have your escort on our trip was as special to them as it was to us. Our families have to deal with many different issues during deployments and it means a lot for them to know that there are groups such as yours providing support to all.

We endeavor to work hard, and fight with honor and integrity, to uphold the reputations established by the many New England veterans that have served before us. I sincerely hope this letter will serve the appreciation we feel as we were unable to provide thanks before your Guards departed our convoy. Please stay safe in all your supportive work for military organizations and wish all the Riders a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

GERARD WALSH
