Email from "Griff"
You do not know me but I had to take the time to let you know of my profound thanks to you and your comrades in the fight you have taken to the enemy. It is because of your bravery that I am not forced to face the evil doers on my home town streets. Your valor and courage are without question in my mind and heart. You, your lovely wife and daughter have given more than I will ever be able to repay. To say “thank-you” is so small and trite in light of your courage to see my family and uncounted other families living in safety. Words fail me at a time like this. Your mission now is to use the courage that sustained you overseas, to complete your recovery for your loved ones and yourself. Godspeed SGT. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Thank you for this! I am Buzz's aunt and I print the notes to him and snail mail them to Walter Reed Hospital. We just got the word today that the doctors have determined his spinal injuries to be more severe than they thought. He is not expected (by the doctors) to walk again and will have to do some extensive rehabilitation. However, he is strong willed and he has family support and we still hope he will prove the doctors wrong.
Thank you for your kind words. I know they will inspire him.
I am dismayed, however, to hear that only FIVE of you have bothered to send Buzz an email of support, at least, so far.
Here's the email address again: firstname.lastname@example.org
Come on, folks, we can do A LOT better than that........
