Yesterday I received help from two Navy guys in time of need, and I want to thank them for it. I did ask them to leave their information, and I know which base and ship they are station at. What would be an appropirate and respectful way to show my gratitude? I was thinking about writing a letter to their superiors (base commander?) commending their kindness and action, and perhaps mail them some gift certificates as a token of appreciation. Would that be appropriate?

I appreciate your input. thanks..

sure, write a letter to their commanding officer detailing how they helped you

that would be good. i would skip the GC, unless you send that to them privately


just address it something like


Commanding Officer, USS BigShip
Naval Base Pearl Harbor
Honolulu HI 12345

and it should end up in the right place

or google the ship and look for contact info and you might get the exact address

yeah, writing a letter to their C.O. would be way cool, plus the gift certificates (sent to them directly like FoBoT suggested) are an added bonus as well.
