Congratulations to Army Specialist Robert Maggio. We are so proud of you. You have accomplished greatness with your courage and wisdom in your continued service to our country. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for the strength it must have taken to enlist in the service, and then to continue on to accomplish so much in such a short period of time. You and other servicemen and women are keeping our country safe, and are fighting for our freedom with your bravery. Congratulations to your parents for raising a man with such integrity. We await your safe return at the end of your duty. Thank you. Thank You. Thank You.
