Thank you for all you do !

Comments: I am writing this in honor of my mother's memory Lt. Mary T. ("Penny") Burley, R.N.

She was stationed with the 48th M.A.S.H. Unit.
She was so proud of her time spent with this unit and shared many wonderful stories with me as I was growing up.

Her happiest moments were those spent in the U.S. Army.

As an Army veteran myself, I salute those of you who served with my mom.

God's blessings,

Nicholas B. Kenney

Comments: Many localities received MASH units in whole or in part. One of my jurisdictions contacted me because of a sign stating contact your local health department for questions concerning this MASH Unit.

I have some knowledge of the different types of medical equipment/supplies included with the unit, and have some concerns about the lay public trying to reuse materials and/or improper disposal of materials.

I am waiting for a response from the Army. Any comments/guidence would be appreciated.
