Dear Dana and family,
Good evening from where I am currently at! As a deployed sailor from LHD-2 USS Essex I cannot thank you enough for the time and effort you have given us by making these pillow cases. The fact that we are gifted such a personal creation means a lot to us. We can all relate to the family member who gives us personal creations like this at holidays and these pillow cases really bring back the “Home” feeling. So again, thank you for what you’ve done!
A little about us.
We are V-3 division, which is for Aviation Boatswains Mates Handlers. Our job is to respond to aviation fires, move aircraft for storage, and maintain all flight deck operations. We work around the clock to maintain our primary mission of supporting marines! Our boat is a LHD class ship, which happens to be home for sailors and marines. We work cohesively together to tackle any mission from humanitarian aid to beach assaults. We can do it all! We also really appreciate your son’s service aboard CVN 68 USS Nimitz. I’m sure your son, being from a carrier, knows exactly what air department is all about.
All in all, thank you. That is not only from me but from the entire division. Those pillow cases were grabbed up so quickly we couldn’t even pick a pattern! We all love them and continue to talk about how much more comfy the pillows are now with some real fabric on them!
Very Respectfully, ABH3 Rxxxxx
I just want to take the time and say thank you for the beautiful pillow cases we received from Head at Ease. It is nice to know that you all took the time to give the crew a little something from home and make them know that their sacrifice from leaving their families and love ones is not forgotten. Once again thank you. My pillow case was made by Susan S, thank you Susan.

So far, so good. Very much appreciated! Have a Blessed week,
