Not sure what to say?

Mr. Arnold,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army-especially during the Vietnam War. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

My grandparents, Sophie and Howard, lived next to Ben in the 90s and 2000s. When we would visit them, if Ben was outside, he would always stop to say hello and ask how we were doing. He was always so friendly and nice. My condolences to his family.
