I am glad the world has learned to honor the warriors in spite of the politicians' decisions.
Dang, Dennis, I did
get a steak almost as soon as we got to the reception station. We arrived at dinner time and, after that 13 hour flight, the cadre took us to the mess hall. I wolfed that sucker down as I was in a hurry to get back to NC but, I'll tell you this: It was cooked to perfection!
Yes, Dennis, like you, I'm very glad our citizens recognize returning veterans very favorably these days.
