Hi Honey,

Hope all is well with you and your guys there in the Lancers’ MMC department, keeping those EA-6Bs up and flying for the great US Navy. We [i.e. our friends, church families, and the Sapida girls and relatives) are very proud of what you guys are doing there in support of the operation. Long hours of work, I understand but keep yours and the crews’ spirit high for we know that your mission there is necessary to liberate the poor people of Iraq from the injustices of the current regime. Stay healthy and safe. Our love and prayers are with you all. May God be with you and the troops of the coalition. We hope to see every one of you back on the “rock” real soon.

Love and miss you much,
