FDAF Thank You Letter

September 20, 2004

Board of Directors
Federal Drug Agents Foundation
50 Jericho Turnpike
Jericho, NY 11753


My sincerest thanks are extended to you and the membership of the Federal Drug Agents Foundation (FDAF) for your continued support of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and its mission. The Foundation has provided so much support over the past week that it is difficult to begin to thank you. Your assistance is a tangible symbol of our partnership. We are thankful for your help with the silent auction, the boat ride for the SAC’s and the wonderful banner that welcomes visitors to the museum. The Foundation’s hospitality in hosting the reception at the Plaza Hotel was first rate and provided a wonderful venue for the agency’s senior managers to meet a broad cross section of New York’s law enforcement community. I am also particularly grateful to the FDAF for recognizing Special Agent Arthur Guedes’ heroic actions in foiling a bank robbery. The plaque that you presented to him was appreciated not only by Special Agent Guedes, but by all of the men and women at DEA.

The FDAF’s generosity helped to assure that the “Target America” exhibit and the contemporaneous SAC Meeting were total successes. On behalf of Administrator Karen Tandy and the DEA family let me once again thank you for support. The men and women of the FDAF should be very proud of their contributions in promoting partnerships between public sector organizations and the business community. Your efforts are helping to promote respect for the rule of law and strengthening cooperation between and among law enforcement organizations. Thank you.

Anthony P. Placido
Special Agent in Charge
