Hello and thank you for your support of the US Air Force. Members of the TEAMGARZA Delayed Entry Program are asked to participate in this year’s Watermelon Run for the Fallen, the nation’s largest 5k run/walk/roll dedicated to recognizing the sacrifice of our military members who have been lost as a result of our current conflicts. The event will include a DEP swear in ceremony, lots of military tributes and a 5k run with families that have lost members during their service. If you are unable to allow your son/daughter/employee/other time away to participate in this event, please take a few moments to type up the justification so that I can include this in the trainee’s records. This is an important military event and we need all members to participate, unless there is an unavoidable conflict. Feel free to use the template below or craft your own, following the basic content structure provided. Thank you! SSgt Matthew Garza (281) 989-2591

CITY, STATE, ZIP
SUBJECT: WATERMELON RUN FOR THE FALLEN, 17 AUG 19
Dear SSgt Matthew Garza,
[TRAINEE FULL NAME] will be unable to participate in the Watermelon Run for the Fallen on 17 August 2019, from 0700-1200 approx, because ______________________________ (short and sweet).
Use this paragraph to justify why the trainee is unable to attend. Stress the WHY and the IMPORTANCE of the function that is creating the conflict and explain what efforts have been taken to try and solve conflicts.
I am aware of a similar event being held in Houston, TX on 7 September 19, in the morning, and will make sure that conflicts will be avoided for that event.
