Steven H. Dodd, President & CEO, Dodd Electric Service, Inc.
I received your shipment, I was pleasantly surprised to find an envelope with your thank you letter, an American Flag lapel pin and a copy of the Constitution of the United States. I was not only surprised but quite overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of the contents. I was almost in tears.
I have been in business as an electrical contractor for over 30 years and have received all sorts of thank you letters, cookies, specialty pastries and the like from various suppliers and manufacturers. However I have NEVER received such an inspiring gift as the one you have sent...
The intent of this e-mail is to thank you and Patriot Aluminum Products for standing up for this nation and employing our veterans. I also give preference to veterans when hiring. I am a Viet Nam era Navy veteran and a Viet Nam War orphan. My father, M/Sgt. James E. Dodd died in combat in 1970 on his third tour. He was a Green Beret and a three war veteran, WWII, Korea and Viet Nam. I belong to an organization called "Sons and Daughters In Touch" (SDIT) of the Viet Nam War Memorial. We, the children of this nations fallen, salute you for all you do for our veterans.
Again, thank you for all you do for this nation. If I may be so bold, I would like to speak a blessing upon you, your business, your family and especially your employees whom most assuredly count it a blessing to be a part of your company.
Numbers 6:24-26 - "The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace."
May God richly bless you all.
In His Service,
