    Really wonderful and touching. I have the deepest respect for those who have given their lives for our nation.

    Jerry, that is a cool thing. I have been to more memorials in the past 4 years for 1st group then I care to think about. Josh's was one of the roughest. I didn't know him personally and only ran into him a time or two on jumps, but his people loved him and it showed at his memorial.

    I've been to several myself of people I knew on base. 3 out of group, 2 being long tabs and of course Jay being support.

    If you show up today at WTB I'll have it with me.

    Jerry, that is a stout gesture and you sure deserve it.
