LOS ANGELES, CA - May 18, 2005 - As Americans continue to celebrate
National Military Appreciation Month, a California teenager has
accomplished what no other person has been able to do - give one thank
you note to every person serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Last year, Shauna Fleming, 16, a sophomore at Lutheran High School in
Orange, CA, convinced her Principal, Gregg Pinick, to have her school
be the collection point of her letter campaign that she called "A
MILLION THANKS. Her goal was to collect and distribute one million
thank you letters and emails to U.S. Service Members, here and
overseas.

In October, 2004, Fleming reached her goal and had the millionth
letter framed for presentation to President George W. Bush. That
presentation occurred in the Oval Office in November, but Fleming was
not satisfied with a million.

"I wanted to find a way to thank all of our Service Members, so I
decided to continue collecting letters and emails until I reached 1.4
million, the number given to me by the Pentagon, said Fleming. "This
week we reached that so I can say, at least symbolically, that A
MILLION THANKS has a thank you for every Service Member," Fleming
added.

Gregg Pinick, Principal of Lutheran High School said he is proud of
Shauna and all of his students and faculty for reaching a number that
is historic.

Fleming said the 1.4 millionth letter will be framed and sent to
General Frank B. Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Fleming has also writen a book titled, "A MILLION THANKS" (Doubleday
Books) about her experiences, along with some of the 1.4 million
letters she has received this past year. The book was released in
April. She has even had offers to turn her story into a television
movie.

So what's next? "I am planning to charter A MILLION THANKS clubs in
high schools, and establish a Foundation to assist wounded soldiers
and their families," said Fleming. "Plus, I'd like to reach another
million thanks."
