SOMALIA DUTY FOR D.C.-AREA THRIFTY CARE RENTAL EMPLOYEE

 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Thrifty Care Rental issued the following:
 Mohamed Hussein, a Thrifty customer service representative in Alexandria, has been in Somalia the last three weeks serving as a volunteer interpreter for American soldiers in Operation Restore Hope. Here in the states, Hussein works for one of the 24 D.C.-metro area Thrifty Car Rental locations owned by the Welcome Corporation, the largest Thrifty Rent-A-Car U.S. franchisee. The Somali native and father of a two-month-old baby is not expected to return to the United States until sometime in February or March.
 On New Year's Eve, he got to shake hands with President Bush and then was allowed to make a five-minute call to the United States. When he couldn't reach his wife, he called Thrifty to see how things were going at work. That's dedication!
 Tom Schwartz, station manager of Thrifty's Pickett Street location, received these laudatory comments in a letter from a U.S. Army colonel: "You can be proud of your Somali employee. All Somalis who volunteered to support our troops in Operation Restore Hope believe that if America can make this sacrifice for the starving people in Somalia, then they too can make a sacrifice."
 Mohamed has our respect as well as our wishes for a swift and safe return.
