After a night mission in Afghanistan saw Christopher Garrett, a former combat engineer, take a bullet to his gut his military career was over.

The letter was simple and printed off of a computer by a neighbor who remains anonymous even now. Two simple sentences and a thank you read, ‘I hope this saves time for the things that matter most in your life. Thank you for your service and my freedom. Sincerely, a grateful American’.
