Wednesday, September 2, 2009

Dear Spirit Lake Community, United Methodist Church and Ladies of the Lake Daughters of the American Revolution and other contributors:

The Pastoral Services of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Wounded Warrior Ministry Center is writing to you to thank you for supporting America's sons and daughters who are making hard sacrifices for our precious freedom. Your donations provide both comfort and encouragement for the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and their family members that come to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center and Ramstein Air Force Base.

Your generosity makes it possible for us to assist these wounded warriors and their families. The Landstuhl Regional Medical Center is a beacon of healthcare for America's servicemen and women abroad. Spiritual support through pastoral services and your gifts enhance the holistic healthcare we provide for all those who proudly perform their sacred duty. What you have given blesses these precious men and women. I want to thank you for your caring and compassionate service to all those who serve their country so well.

Blessings and peace,

CH (MAJ) Eric R. Meyners

Chaplain, Wounded Warrior Ministry Center
