You are obviously a man who understands duty and service to your country and your fellow man.
As the son of a Vietnam Veteran, I just wanted to say WELCOME HOME and God bless you!!
I actually live in Manhattan, Ks. Right next to Ft. Riley, Home of the Big Red One. It's a proud Division with a great history, thanks to men like you that made it what it is.
Thank you, Bugsy. I'm humbled by your kind words. I'm currently in Burlingame, CA and I rode my GSA out here from NC. About three weeks ago, I passed through Junction City and I always give a salute when I pass Fort Riley's airfield. I always feel a bit of pride when I see that Big Red One patch on the water tower.
