I can't say how much I appreciate what you and many others did. Kind of grinds my gears when they talk about the greatest generation. You guys over there have as much respect from me as anyone ever will. You are a national hero. I'm sorry today is the first time I saw the post
We sure are proud to have you in the GON family Preacher. No words we have can adequately articulate the gratitude we have for you young men who answered the call, and no words can sufficiently describe how honored we are to be fortunate enough to call you friend. You boys are deserving of the highest honor. We appreciate your service and sacrifice, and we pray blessings upon you and your family. I know your family and friends were wrought with worry the entire time you deployed. I know it was hard on them too, and I know they were overcome with joy at your return. That feeling of reuniting after a long time away in a war zone is truly something words can never describe, isn't it?
Thanks so much Preacher. I always admired the soldiers who led the way before me. You are held in high esteem in my book!!!
I just came upon this thread. Thank You for your service and sacrifice so that we may enjoy things like this forum and all the freedoms fine people like you afford us! Thank You! The emotion that emerged after seeing that cover must have been incredible...I can't even imagine. I was just a kid during Vietnam but remember seeing in the news the daily casualty reports, draft lottery and reports from the field. God Bless
