A Thank you, Mr. President

Dear Mr. President,

I am a conservative and a retired vet. I do not vote for your party but I do respect you and your position. I just wanted to thank you for caring for those poor souls in Iraq and for sending food and water to the Christians trapped by Isis. Thank you for sending help and thank you for being bold and defending those folks as you have. God bless you and your family.
