Dakota Meyer: Marty Coates plans career to serve veterans

Marty Coates, a student in Mr. Michael Mabry's class in Ramsey IL, sends this open letter to Dakota Meyer to be shared with CM readers, dated September 19, 2011:
Dear Mr.Dakota Meyer,

I just wanted to congratulate you on being honored with this great achievement. I also wanted to thank you for your bravery and your heart-warming care for your fellow soldiers. I know you are most likely getting thousands of letters, but I figured I would let you know that I am one of the many people who you inspired.

I never knew exactly what I wanted to do with my future. I knew I wanted to do something to do with massage therapy. Now, I realize that I want to do Massage Therapy for Veterans, so that way I too can help those who help to keep us safe. Who knows maybe someday i will get the opportunity to start my own Massage therapy,chiropractic and physical therapy business for veterans. Thanks again, -Marty Coates
