Mr. Sherman,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the USN in the Pacific fighting the Japanese during WW II as a crew member on the aircraft carrier USS Bunker Hill(CV-17) which saw extensive action and suffered a grievious kamikaze attack in May of 1945 off Okinawa and suffered hundreds of casualties. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
