I was blown away when I heard JB read my message this morning. I didn't check my email until now so it was a big surprise. I called my wife as soon as I heard it and shared it with her.  

I do want to bring you up to date on where the reminder coins went. I had originally bought them to keep one for myself and the other for a good friend of mines birthday. Steve will still get his coin tomorrow, but my wife and I gave the other one to our nephew on Christmas Day who is in the SC National Guard and may be deployed this year. We asked him to come outside with us and I first showed him a coin that was given to me by a vet who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, the Northern Front. He was part of Task Force Viking and it was his own personal coin. I didn't want to take it, but he insisted. I carry it with me everyday. We then handed Ryan the reminder coin and explained to him what it meant and where it came from. There were other family members standing around who listened to the story and wanted more information about Products for Good. They had family members they wanted/needed to thank for their service. As soon as we finished giving him the coin he got up, gave us a big hug, and ran off to find his mother to show her what we had given him. You could tell he was proud to have it and carry it. It was the highlight of a great Christmas Day and meal and without your organization we couldn't have done it. 

 I'm also going to order a few more coins. I found a contractor that works for us that is a Vietnam vet and I want to make sure he is thanked for his service.

 Thanks again and keep up the good work, Bobby

Thank you and your people so much for getting Larry’s shadow box to him for his retirement.  He was very honored to receive it.  It was one of the few times I’ve seen him at a loss for words.

In July I told you guys a story about my grandfather William Pearce Zellner.  I bought him a single coin shadow box and told his story of being a WWII Vet on Utah beach with his 90th birthday on July 27th.
