Dear Sirs, I would like to inform you that I received the check issued by Air Commando Foundation yesterday. My family and I would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for your financial assistance, especially in our time of mourning. Your organization’s generosity and support have provided us some solace knowing that we would not be financially burdened by repaying back the money we owed.It’s times like these that I’m glad I’m a part of the greatest organization in the world where taking care of each other is a top priority. Again sir, thank you and please extend our appreciation to the Air Commandos for the aide you and your organization have provided me and my family. If there’s anything I can do to repay you back, please let me know. Have a wonderful Air Force day.
