Mr. Gangemi,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army in Korea fighting the communist North Koreans and Chinese. Because of you and your fellow Servicemen millions of South Koreans were able to in lease and prosperity and make their country one of the most industrious of the Free World. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
