Phoenix V Team Letter of Appreciation

We received a gratifying letter and certificate of appreciation from Brigadier General Douglas A. Pritt, Commanding Officer of the Army  Combined Joint Task Force Phoenix V Team serving at Camp Phoenix in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Brigadier General Pritt writes "on behalf of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines of Task force Phoenix it is my pleasure to personally thank you and your team for all the great work you do to extend the goodwill of Americans to the people of Afghanistan." Since SoA considers all of our donors, supporters and friends as part of our extended "team", this letter is grateful thanks to you for contributing to the good that is being done in Afghanistan.

As you may remember, SoA purchased medical equipment under our Hospital Supplies for Afghanistan project for the Ibnisina Emergency Hospital a vital but under-equipped facility in one of the busiest and poorest areas of Kabul. Thanks to generous donations and the support of Welch Allyn Corporation, SoA was able to provide the following:

  • 2 EKG Machines
  • 10 ENT (Ear, Nose & Throat) Diagnostic Sets
  • 30 Blood Pressure Gauges
  • 50 Double Head Stethoscopes

In Brigadier General Pritt's letter he confirms that "In addition to confronting the enemy militarily, it is critical we also make a difference in the lives of the common citizens of this troubled country. Ultimately making a positive impact in their lives is what will save American lives, and I salute your ongoing efforts to support this."

No endorsement of Spirit of America by the US Department of Defense or its personnel is intended or implied.
