Bonnie,

Thank you and your students for one of the Greatest experiences of my life! I have never felt so much pride for having served in the military as I did when I left the theatre last night. You and your students have worked so hard and have endured so much in the way of hardship, censorship and ignorance in order to put this performance on and I am greatfull you did, because I left last night with a renwed sense of hope for our youth and the future of our country. They reminded me of the pride I felt as I served and what it means to me to wear the uniform. They have personified the Army core values and through your leadership have put then into action in order to get to that stage and in my eyes that makes all of you true patriots. I speak for all in uniform when I say; “what you and your students have done is what we fight to protect” and if what I have done with my service in Iraq has helped ensure the right of you and your students to put on your production then it was all worth it and I would do it all again if I had to. Thank you !!!!

However I will be at the Sunday nite show with my wife as well as the one on the15th keep up the good work I am proud of you all.
