Unselfish efforts

To the Editor:

Kudos to the U.S. Army recruiting team of Crystal Lake who changed a flat tire for my daughter-in-law on Thursday morning.

We know they take an oath to defend our collective liberties. We appreciate and thank them for their unselfish efforts. I’m not so sure those uniformed young men were pledged to aid in changing a flat tire, outside in sub-zero wind chill conditions.

For the “above-and-beyond-the-call-of-duty” action, we salute you. Please accept our gratitude.
