To the Editor:
As the holiday season approaches, I would like to express my profound gratitude to the people of Cape May who participate in Operation Fireside. These wonderful people open up their homes to the recruits from the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May.
My son was the recipient of this kindness last Christmas. The friendly atmosphere, good food, love, and support that is given is exactly what the homesick recruits need to energize them for the rest of their training.
I am eternally grateful for the welcome my son received.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.
