Thank you for the acknowledgment. The average age of soldiers, marines, airmen,
and sailors, who were in Vietnam during that war was 19-years old. The older guys
were the ones' who were in their early twenties.
We all serve in one way or another. Those who need our help, like patients we may
meet while working in the medical field, give us the opportunity to be of service.
No one's service is greater than anyone else's service, this I believe in my heart.
We all have a role to play in the grand scheme of things, and in my opinion,
no one dies until it is time for them to die. The only question is the manner of our death.
I salute your uncle as part of my band of brothers, and think it is awesome that
you got to meet him in your dreams. Peace and good journey to you Colorado.
