Thank you James Blair White

Dear James Blair White,
Thank you for risking your life for the Air Force. I think that shows an honorable man who wants to help his nation. Even though I do not know you I thank you very much for helping to win the Vietnam War; every little bit counts when you are fighting. All of the little things in life are made up of the bigger things. Without winning the war, I don't know what would have happened. Thanks again for your willingness to do your best and help out America.
Sincerely,
Priya Singh
