Dear Sir:
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for the fine work you are doing for the enlisted men overs-seas.
This letter is not intended to be of a political nature but merely an expression of gratitude that we feel in the interest you have shown in our behalf.
There have been times when we felt that G.I. Joe, Mac, the Gyrene[?] and the so called "Can Do" Boys were lost in the shuffle and forgotten on some God Forsaken island, but our faith is restored in mankind and in the ideals for which we are fighting when we see that someone has taken the initiative to investigate the situation and is attempting to do something for us. We realize that your crusade will be difficult, but we would like you to be cogniscent[sic] of the fact that we are one hundred percent for you.
We hope that your undertaking will follow the Sea-Bee tradition "Can Do"
Yours truly
Douglas Cave
