"I am B. Bowser on the USNS Spearhead (JHSV-1). I wanted to thank you for the care package. The rest of the crew and myself are very grateful there are organizations and people such as yourselves who support the Soldiers and Sailors serving abroad. After we had received the packages it was like a school cafeteria at lunch, trading this for that. A little bit about me. I am 20 years old from Garrett County, Maryland. I have been in almost three years and am an Intelligence Specialist who focuses on operational and Imagery Intelligence. The USNS Spearhead is my second Deployment, my first being on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Once again I would like to thank you. your packages and your kindness are greatly appreciated! God Bless you all."
