COMMENTS: Dear Sir or Ma\\\'am,
While cleaning out a memento box of stuff accumulated through my service I came accross a \\\"City of New York Police - IPA 2\\\" badge given to me by an unknown officer during my first port visit (ever). New York City, Fleetweek, June of 1991.
This badge has been with me through many campains around the world for the five years after that visit, Portsmouth, England that September, back to the Gulf the first of 1992, Bosnia, Somolia and finally Haiti, right before the birth of my daughter.
When terrorists attacked your city, I had remembered many faces I had met during that week, and people I have met since who resided there and still become emotional.
In closing, I would like to say, thank you for your fine service to your city and for giving me a precious memento of your city\\\'s hospitality and caring of of visitors.
If by chance you would like this back with a brief story of where it has been, I would gladly pass it forward.
