Glad to be home

Dear Editor:

On Feb. 22, I was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It was a happy day. I had been at Walter Reed since July 6. During that time, I had received hundreds of cards from people across the Panhandle, and I have been the beneficiary of the prayers of thousands more. I hope you will allow me to express my gratitude and to say thank you through this letter.

Walter Reed is a wondrous place albeit for horrible reasons. The doctors, nurses and therapists there are the very best. Moreover, the many non-profit organizations that are dedicated to our wounded warriors insure that whatever our soldiers need is provided. God bless them all.

I am currently assigned to the Community Based Warrior Transition Unit in Orlando, but I will be living in Panama City until my medical board review. It is good to finally be home.

Sincerely,

Carter Hess

Sgt. U.S. Army
