To whom it may concern:

I want to extend my sincere thank you for the quality for your Defender Series cases. I have three Apple devices, two of which have the Defender Series case; my Apple iPad and my Apple iPhone. I also have an Apple iPod Classic that does NOT have a Defender Series case- not sure if you even make one for it or not.

I am currently forward deployed to Herat, Afghanistan at the U.S. consulate. On the morning of September 13, 2013, a day I will never forget, a suicide vehicle borne improvised explosive device (SVBIED) detonated outside our consulate building. The explosion was massive, approximately several thousand pounds of explosives were used with the malicious intent to bring our building down. Call it what you will, divine intervention, terrorist miscalculation; no American was killed that day.

We sustained significant damage to our infrastructure; the explosive concussion blew out all of the windows and doors of the building. I had all three of my Apple devices in my room at the time of the explosion, both my iPad and iPhone in their Defender Series cases. My Apple iPod, however, was not, and was shattered in the blast. Lo and behold, my iPad and iPhone were unharmed, and in perfect working condition. Thanks to your Defender Series cases, I was able to maintain contact with my loved ones at home and assure them I was okay. Your products preformed beyond my wildest expectations and weathered the heinous car bomb attack on September 13, 2013. I highly recommend your products!

Thank you.
