hope this is the right place to post this. If not, please re-post in the 
correct location. My name is Craig Luecke and I'm currently in Port Au 
Prince with the Fairfax County Urban Search & Rescue Team (USA-1) out of 
Fairfax, VA, USA. We were the first USA rescue team on the ground. I 
wish there was a way that I properly express to you how important your 
OSM files were to us. Most of our team members own their own Garmin Rino 
and 60CSx units on top of the units we already have in the equipment 
cache. Having these detailed maps on our GPS units is a big deal. 
Shortly after discovering your work I quickly spread the word and 
transferred the street level maps onto as many Garmin units as we could 
before sending the American rescue teams on the streets. The team 
members are thrilled to have this resource you have created. I wish you 
could see their faces 'light up' when I take their GPS unit and tell 
them that I'm going to give them street level detail maps. They have 
been working VERY hard and anything that can help them in every aspect 
of their mission here is greatly appreciated. I am spreading the word 
about this work to all rescue and humanitarian teams on the ground here 
in Haiti. Please be assured that we are using your data - I just wish we 
knew about this earlier. THANK YOU! If there is anything I can do to 
return the favor please let me know. My email is rocklandusa at gmail.com.
