Sir,
I did not know you personally (even though I was raised in Roseto), however I would be honored to "Thank You" for your dedicated and honorable Military Service; to OUR country.
At a later date, we will meet in that "SPECIAL PLACE" which GOD reserves for ALL of those who have stepped forward; to serve their country in a Military Uniform.
May ALL of GOD'S blessings be with your Dear Family!
