Brigadier General Charles Barr wrote a letter to the Armed Forces Service Center on May 5th, in gratitude for the warm hospitality he received while on a layover.
I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the recent outstanding hospitality and kindness shown to me. During a layover en route home from Kuwait and Iraq on R&R leave, I stopped in at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Armed Forces Service Center. What a nice facility and gracious hosts there to greet me when I entered the door. In particular I extend my personal thanks to Otto Murray and Karen Hodge working in the lounge area. Also thanks to Debra Cain who was greeting and directing service personnel in the main lobby of the airport. Again thanks for everything. We love you all and thank you for your service, too.
Sincerely, BG Charles J. Barr
