Dear Colonel Cammermeyer,
I had the honor and the priviledge of having you as my Chief Nurse at the 352nd CSH. We would have willingly followed you anywhere! Why? You are a born leader. We knew without a shadow of a doubt that you were a soldier with a heart. You understood the Military and guided us through the mazes. You NEVER asked us to do something that you did not share with us. We were a team and we knew our jobs! I am so sorry that I do not reside in your home state. I would have campaigned and voted for you! I would have supported you with my vote because I know first hand that you are a fearless leader and that your personal life does NOT influenece your ability to do an outstanding job in any situation.
I want you to know that there are many of us who have never said "Thank YOU" but we definately felt gratitude and admiration for you as our Chief Nurse! Belated Best wishes on your marriage and I wish both of you endless moments of joy. I had intended to post my name and email until I read the part that says, "ALL Military Personnel: Don't Ask Don't Tell prohibits gay, lesbain, bisexual servicemembers from disclosing sexual orientation. Your personal computer can be confiscated and searched so be extremely cautious about which computers are used and the e-mail you save. Do not use a military or government computer to search the web or receive mail which may put your career in jeopardy." Uffda! I never knew that you were a Norwegian! That is also my ancestry. I am also known as Bestemor!
With sincere admiration and appreciation,

Kay Marie, thank you for your very kind letter of support. I loved working at the 352nd CSH. Our greatest training exercise was when we were in Yakima with the Air Force and the Civil Air Patrol cadets as patients. Clearly what we learned once again was the importance of team work. It was such a pleasure to be part of a team where our focus was to be ready to be activated.
I appreciate your comments about leadership and of course what everyone in charge hopes is to effect and model for others. Thank you for caring, thank you for serving, thank you for taking the time to write.
