Dear Mr. Laux,
Please allow me to express my deepest gratitude to you for your service to our nation. During your seven-year career with the CIA, you served our nation under the most trying conditions – never once doubting yourself or your mission.
Your focus, dedication, and courage have been an asset to our country and I am proud to recognize you as a fellow Ohioan. I wish you the very best and shall always remain greatly indebted to you for your invaluable contribution to our nation.
