Dear Bill, David and David:

I wanted to express my thanks and great appreciation for your outstanding representation of Recon/Optical, Inc. in the various claims brought against the U.S. Army. When I took over these matters from Ron Polasek in September 2008, I was not very familiar with the peculiar world of government contracts and litigation before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals. You have been very patient with me explaining the process in great detail and allowing me to become comfortable making decisions along the way.

I want to commend each of you for your hard work in anticipation of the trial. You developed a sound trial preparation strategy and then executed it. It's hard to know for sure what caused the change of heart in the Government that prompted substantive settlement discussions in November. I tend to think the Government realized that its strategy of trying to wear out ROI was not working and we were ready for trial.

I hope that the settlement will allow you to have more and better quality time with your families this holiday season. I know it will for me. Thank you again for all you have done for ROI and Bourns.
