Members of Bryant Service Club,
A few weeks ago while I was at Officer Candidate School at Camp Backeley, Texas, I received a gift from you. With all the excitement of completing the course and a ten day leave, I was unable to acknowledge your gift, but now that I settled down a bit, I wish to express my sincere thanks for your kind thoughts and remembrances.
