Dear Lead The Way Fund,

Please accept my thanks for your outstanding support of 3d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment during our recent deployment in support of Operation FREEDOM’S SENTINEL.

I was injured during combat operations in Afghanistan on the 15th of June this year. I arrived at Walter Reed about a week later and one of the first people to come see me was
a representative from your organization. I cannot thank you enough for being there for my wife and child, helping her and assisting with her needs. I appreciate the former
Rangers and supporters coming in for moral support.

I am happy to tell you that my recovery has been going very well and I hope to be returned to duty very soon. Thanks to you and many others my morale remains very high,
my recovery remains rapid and I’ll soon be able to continue to pursue the enemies of our nation.

Once again, I just wanted to thank you for all the help and support you have, not only shown me and my family during my time at Walter Reed, but the support you have shown
the 75th Ranger Regiment throughout the years. In these troubled times of our country, your organization has shown me and many others what we continue to fight for.

SSG Thomas
