    Dr. Mr. Wright:

    I wanted to take a moment to send you out a heartfelt note of thanks for all the assistance that you provided me in publicizing the Z-100 Radio Broadcast that aired on September 20, 2015. The program highlighted the invaluable work that the Long Island, NY Chapter of “The Soldiers Project” is doing to assist returning Post 9/11 Veterans and their families. Your 9/15/15 posting on the regarding the show was extremely helpful in getting the word out and spreading awareness about the program to a much broader national audience.

    Mr. Wright, as helpful as that was you went even a step further. You also very graciously agreed to post a recording of the broadcast on the website afterward to allow others to access, download, and listen to the program. You made time to do this in the midst of preparing for the NASW 60th Anniversary Celebration. Now the message about the needs of our Veterans and their families can be heard nationally from coast-to-coast and even globally. I cannot thank you enough for that huge assist. The importance of this broadcast is twofold. First off the messages needed to be sent that “The Soldiers Project” offers their services free of charge to Post 9/11 Veterans and their families. Secondly, there is an urgent need for more volunteer therapist to assist with helping the Vets and their families. Your efforts will ensure that this message will continue to be put forth.

    In closing Mr. Wright I applaud your dedication, professionalism and expertise that you display in the execution of your tasks. Thank you again for all that you have done in support of this endeavor. I look forward to working with you in the future. Also if there is ever anything that I can do to assist you please do not hesitate to ask. It would be my distinct honor and pleasure to do so.
