I would like to say thank you for what you have done for a friend of me and my family in a recent service For Mr. Robert D. from Oklahoma. His family was really honored for what you had provided them in their unfortunate Lost of a Husband, father, grandfather. I know what your all stand for and from one veteran to another veteran I want to thank you all for your service. DWS.
