Dear Ms. Esposito:Enclosed was a financial gift that expressed that the letter above was not mere words, but a deeply held sentiment made real by action.
There is nothing that we – the Korean War Veterans, Rockland Chapter – can say or do to alleviate the pain and suffering that you have gone through over the sudden death of your Husband, Phillip in Iraq. As we said in Korea, he went to fight for a people he hardly knew and a land he never saw. God has a special place in Heaven for men like Captain Esposito who fought to defend the rights of others. All of us knew that when we went to Korea.
The Korean War Veterans, Rockland Chapter ask that you accept this contribution in your husband's honor for your needs.
They also serve who only stand and wait. (John Milton: On His Blindness).

In a time of hardship and despair, I have received many such statements and gifts. I am deeply thankful for them all. They cannot assuage all of my and my daughter's grief, but they nevertheless serve to remind us that we are not alone.
