Thank You Letter

Thank you to the 350 military men and women of Tropic Care for their service to the people of Maui County this past week. They were at various locations throughout the county providing free medical, dental and vision services. I volunteered in Kihei at St. Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church.

The military personnel who participated in Tropic Care are a credit to their families and to their military units. They are well-trained and caring. The civilian volunteers and the staff at St. Theresa’s church are to be commended also. They make us proud to be Americans.
