"I am the departing Food Service Officer at the Coast Guard Air Station in Clearwater. I wanted to share with you the experience I have had the past year working with your contract personnel.

When I first received orders to the Air Station and learned of the Ability One contract I was less than pleased. I'm embarrassed to say that every stereotype I have cultivated throughout my life about individuals living with challenges came to the forefront of my mind." Read Barry's entire letter ...
