Among the Vets . . .
To all Veterans,
Thank you for serving our country.

Pop, I cherish your Navy stories. It's amazing how you saved the USS Oakhill from sinking by plugging the hole with a mattress.
It's also amazing that I believed you for so many years.
Uncle Will -- we miss you immensely and are honoring you and all your veteran brothers today.
