Dear USG,  
We usually have a copy of USGlass

shoes and I wanted to point out that

Dear USG,  
I just finished reading the ar-  
ticle, “Moves that Matter” in the  
March USGlass. Great read! It re-

discussed about the manufacturing of the glass itself, it was nice to see a

getting that glass on site and installed.  
This was much appreciated.  
Dear USG,  
I always knew Lyle Hill was a man  
after my own heart. His article in the  
April issue was very well written, keep-  
ing me in suspense all the way. I hope
