Ladies, Gentlemen, and Fellow Marines,
It is my privilege and honor to announce that you have made it possible to place Dover, NJ on the map in the Toys for Tots Campaign History of 2018. On behalf of my Staff and our Battalion, we do not have the words to say how much we are grateful to have a community, like this one, so involved in our campaign that our Station was selected for the 2018 Toys for Tots Region 1 first place winner. Region 1 consists of the following States (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Washington DC). The amount and countless hours and hard work do not go without notice and it is why you have made this possible. I would like to say thank you for helping us put a smile on every child throughout Northern New Jersey.

Lastly, I will be the coordinator again for my final time while on Active Duty. This will be my last year before retiring in April of 2020; therefore, I would like to challenge all of you that can make this Christmas just as good as last year.
