Honoring Our Heroes

"thank you, I wasn't going to register but I found out later my wife registered me. She said
after 23 years this is the only time anyone has done something like this
so I guess I will see you there. It's not that I don't appreciate what you all are doing, I do.
I just tend to stay in the background and just do my job if that makes sense.”
