Dear Mr. Winkler,

My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting.  My favorite tv shows that you played in were Happy Days and Royal Pains.  Happy Days was a great tv show about a life of a teenager Richie Cunningham and his friends including his family on dealing with life.  In Happy Days, I thought you did an excellent job making Arthur Herbet Fonzarelli (Fonzie)  a great character with different unique traits like  working hard to overcome his challenges, helping his friends when they have difficulties, and many others. Another thing that I liked about Fonzie was how he would go the extra mile to help people who were disadvantage like a person with a disability, support the civil rights movement to reduce discrimination,   and many others.   Also in Happy Days I like some of Fonzie catchphrases like Heyyyy! And Whoa! and getting an attention of girls by snapping his fingers.  Royal pains was another tv show that had a great plot about Dr. Hank Lawson who lost is job due to an accident on a patient where he and his brother Evan moves to the Hamptons to start a business as a conjure doctor to help patients who can’t afford health care.  In Royal Pains I like on how Hank would work hard to understand his life including personal life when he faces different challenges, learn to understand friendships, and many others.  I liked on how you made Eddie Lawson a great character in the show because I liked on how Eddie works hard to improve his relationship with his sons Hank and Evan when he comes out from prison and caring about Hank when has hard times in life.  Some of my favorite movies that you played in were Heroes and The Waterboy. Heroes had a great story about how a Vietnam veteran Jack starts a friendship with Carol, a woman who is not sure about her engagement on a trip to California. The Waterboy was a great comedy movie about Bobby Boucher Jr., who is a waterboy with socially inept who used to work as a waterboy for a University of Lousinana football program and gets recruited to Mud Dogs team to be a waterboy and later as a linebacker for the team.  In Waterboy, I like on how you made Coach Klein a important figure in the movie because I liked on how you made him have great traits like helping bobby have some motivation in life and being a friend along with a mentor when he gets bullied about having difficulty with a disability, helping train Bobby to understand how football works.

Besides your acting, I like on how you are an activist on supporting Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ causes, advocate for the need for diversity in the entertainment, and many others. Mr. Winkler, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be an strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ right causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your roles as Ronzie in Happy Days on his commitment to support Civil Rights including help friends or people in need and as Coach Klien in Waterboy helps me try to understand how friendships works and how to try to find ways to motivate myself.  

I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor.  You really do such an excellent job making your character have different unique traits. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, try my best to understand how friendships works,  and how to motivate myself when I have difficulties.  I was wondering if you could please give me some advice about working hard on my disability.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, doing an excellent job acting, and inspiring me.  I wish you the best for the future.

Sincerely,

Matt Winick

Dear Admiral McRaven,

My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history.  In these subjects, I enjoy learning the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from being discriminated, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Admiral McRaven, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as United States Navy Admiral to be very inspiring to me.

In 2011, I was very proud on how you accepted President Barack Obama to be nominated to serve as 9th Commander of United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) to help him combat against counter terrorism and to help improve U.S. troops to develop skills in order to protect our country.  In your role as 9th Commander of USSOCOM, I liked on how you were a strong supporter of Civil Rights to help protect minorities, women, people with disabilities, and people with different sexual orientation from being discriminated in the military and also advocated for more protection to help protect them from discrimination policies.  Another thing that I liked about your role as 9th Commander of USSOCOM is how you worked with President Obama to find ways to help fund facilities to help train Navy Seals to be prepared for action, push for funds to make helmets including body armor to be stronger to help protect U.S. troops from danger, and expand technology to help the military including intelligence be efficient on monitoring any suspicious activity.  In Operations Neptune Spear, I liked on how you worked with CIA Director Leon Panetta, Pakistani intelligence, and other military officials  to plan an operation to end Osama bin Laden.   Also on that operation I liked on how you worked with President Barack Obama on understanding the operation and helping President Obama to use good judgment.  After you retired from the military, I am very proud on how you continue to advocate for the need to help veterans get jobs including medical care they need, express the need to make Civil Rights stronger,  provide funds to help U.S. troops get the care including the equipment they need, and advocate for people with disabilities’ rights.

Admiral McRaven, I have Autism with a learning disability.  Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased.  Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights and be an advocate for people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability and to work hard when I face different challenges.  Your role in the military as United States Navy Admiral and as 9th Commander of USSOCOM motivates me to continue my interest in learning history and understand the need to fund the military to help U.S. troops get the care they need and learn the need for society to help veterans get the care they need.  My future goal is to someday teach people about the need to make society better by making Civil Rights stronger, have checks and balances in intelligence data,  and the need to work together in order to prevent danger.

Admiral McRaven, I strongly believe that you made a great difference in history, our country, and the world.  I’m very proud on how you worked with President Obama to help improve the military, make Civil Rights stronger, and to end Osama Bin Laden. Another thing is I appreciate your courage and commitment to help President Obama when the new media especially Congress from both political parties were not keen in helping President Obama.  You have inspires me to work hard on my disability and to continue my passion for history. My letter is a gift of appreciation of you for working hard to make our country safer, being committed to work with President Obama, and inspiring me. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it was like being a U.S. Navy Admiral and describe your favorite achievements as 9th Commander of USSOCOM.  Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make our country a better place, and inspiring me.  I wish you well for the future and to continue to advocate for common sense ideas to make society better.

Sincerely,

Matt Winick
