A simple kindness

Hello, all, you may have noticed my posts trying to locate a Gold "Wintered Over" bar, that is missing from a Naval Petty Officers medal bar. Well as unbelievable as this sounds. I received an email from the Antarctic Support people in reply to my letter explaining the situation. I post the response here:

"Dear Captain Albert:

I received your August 24, 2010 letter requesting a gold winter over bar for Petty Officer Raymond Edwin Griffith from Raytheon Polar Services Company in Colorado.

I'm pleased to inform you that the gold wintered over bar is in the mail to you. We ran out of the appropriate envelopes, so please look for a square shaped white jiffy bag (typically used for mailing CD's and DVD's).

Best regards,

Nadene" - I had to post this as it shows some people do care. Thank you Nadene, I really appreciate your help. Cheers Captain Albert

First here is a wintered over bar (clasp) for the Antarctica medal. Second I am pretty sure is over 25. Very sweet lady so I will not give you her email. Also thanks Joe for your response. Cheers Captain Albert :cheers:
