I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your service. When I joined the Army in 1987 there were still a lot of Vietnam vets in the Army and they taught me how to be a soldier. I appreciate them and everything they taught me. They were a no bullshit tough soldier that didn't hold back, they gave their all and expected nothing less than perfection. The lessons I learned were priceless to me during my career. You guys do not get the respect you deserve and for that all I can say is that those people didn't know you. I did and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for what you did and for passing the torch onto to a guy that was repeatedly told, "You fucking idiot if you do that in combat you are going to die."
