CFH receives Army Commendation!


CFH has been commended by the Army! Though the packet came to Sandy's attention, the honor goes to all the CFH cardmakers and donors who have given so sacrificially to our nation's deployed heroes. Congratulations to you all!

The packet contains a letter that reads:


You have been submitted for a U.S. Army Freedom Team Salute Commendation by 1LT R.D. for your contributions to our Army community.

America has always called upon the Army to do the hard jobs, and its Soldiers answer the call to duty. Ours is a free Nation — the standard-bearer of freedom for millions of less fortunate people — because our freedoms are guaranteed by great Soldiers and the families and communities by their side.

Ours is an Army of tradition. Our greatest tradition is selfless service to our Country, and in that service we ask Soldiers to carry out the tough missions that take them away from home, community, and family. Today, Soldiers answer the call to defend us against new kinds of threats. Deployments have increased in frequency and length in order to maintain our commitments to freedom, to our way of life and to the American family.

As Soldiers serve, the support of families and communities sustains them so they can do what must be done to protect our freedoms. Our Nation would not have the service of Soldiers without your support and patriotism. As an Army Supporter, you make a difference to our Soldiers and to our Country.

Please accept the enclosed Army lapel pin. It symbolizes the partnership between our Army, its Soldiers, their families and our communities — a partnership as old as the Nation itself. We hope that you will wear this pin with pride, as a statement of our shared commitment to our Soldiers and to our Country.

Sincerely,

George W. Casey, Jr.
General, United States Army
Chief of Staff

Pete Geren
Secretary of the Army
