Dear Dawn, Ann, Julie, Jenny W, Jenny S, Colin, Stan and Nick,
“I know, as do my Air Force Board
colleagues, just how much your efforts and commitment have given to our families over the last year – Thank you!
“I have no doubt that your service to
our families and the ideal of getting appropriate recognition for the commitment that they make is both heart-warming and very humbling to all of us in the Service.
“2012 is going to be a very challenging year for all, but I trust that you will be ready to help us face the future whatever it brings.
“Thanks for the great job that you have done in 2011!”
Warmest Wishes, Stephen Dalton Chief of the Air Staff
