It hangs on our wall along with some other awards if his service. The military made him a better person, a better teacher and a great man of service to all. He calls men young and old sir in passing. He helps women in distress, he's often been late because he stopped to change the tire of a woman stranded alone. He treats children with respect. And I am fortunate that after 23 years of service he retired unharmed. That's been years ago.
Today my thoughts are withtjose who served just as admirably as he yet didn't return home or were injured.
Thank you all, may you have peace and forever feel all our love and respect.
I will always remember.
