___________________________________________________________________________

Dear Col. Burnet,

 

I want to thank you for your sponsorship this year for the SAME/USAFA Camp. I had an amazing time working with my Flight to build various structures such as concrete beams, water filters and sprinkler systems.  I was given a great tour of the Academy and my two counselors gave me valuable information about the Academy and military life. Our Flight won "Best Flight" for the 2013 session which summed up an amazing camp experience. Thanks again for such an educational and exciting opportunity. 

Sincerely,

 

Slater Daniels
