Don,

On behalf of myself, and the entire Rhoads Team working on the Yorktown, I want to thank you for your support, professionalism, and hard work to make it a success.

Lou, Amanda, Brian, Mike and the others worked tirelessly to help us achieve a successful Dry Docking. Lou and Amanda who were with us almost the entire time, saved numerous hours with their dedication and fast thinking.

Please tell your entire team that a huge part of this success rests with them, and we look forward to the next two phases working with Dryden.
