Thanks, it just sad that this late in his life it just happening now instead of when he did those things. But better late than never I guess. :)

While he was there people asked him to speak at 4 other engagements.

  The wife and I was out shopping here while back. I had my Vet cap on and I had two ladys come up and shook my hand and say thank You for what you have did. I also had a fellow Vet holler at me *SOLDIER* and when I turned around he saluted me. I returned it and I dam near cried. Nobody has ever thanked me that much.
