Dear Jamie and Kyle,

Jeannie, John and I cannot thank you enough for your generous accolades on our behalf. As I said at the time, I felt like President Obama when he prematurely received the Nobel Peace Prize, because true courage would have had us in the water, and you guys arrived just in time to save us from that test.

In all seriousness, your fast response time, your creativity in devising a means to pull that man our of the river, and the sheer physical effort necessary to do so were all a marvel. No wonder we are all so proud of our superb Garrison Volunteer Fire Co.!

Sincerely,
Doug (Banker)
