    And i remember him telling me, what he thought upon finding out
    what company he was in..."oh great"... "Custers Company"..."what
    could possibly go wrong?" LOL He is also in the first 8 minutes of the movie "Heartbreak Ridge".. being helped by two other soldiers up an incline right towards the Camera. He was wounded by shrapnel
    just before this footage was taken. Silver Star and Purple Heart
    recipiant. He carried a BAR and used to say.."Man, that was
    heavy"! Just wanted to take this opportunity to thank All the
    veterans today who have made my life better for your service!
    Thank you for the freedoms i sometimes take for granted.
    My Father isnt around anymore, but hes still with me in spirit.
    I appreciate his sacrifices, and YOURS!

    Please take to heart that many DO appreciate what you did
    for us. I certainly do. Have a great year Heros!
