D. BURT - A GRATEFUL AMERICAN
RHODE ISLAND USA
**TO HONOR AN AMERICAN HERO NOT FORGOTTEN**
ôOur debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid, they have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrificesö. - PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN ~ ~ ~ PR1 SCHMITTOU, UNITED STATES NAVY - Although many years have passed, you are not forgotten this day nor will you ever be. I will forever be grateful for your honorable service and supreme sacrifice that you have so courageously bestowed upon our nation. You will forever live in the hearts of all of those you have touched. "Fair winds and following seas~~~~ I am very grateful and would like to honor all of our Vietnam veterans who have so proudly and courageously served our country. No veteran should ever be forgotten. The veteran who lived through this horrible war, left with everlasting memories and whose lives may be altered forever, the disabled veteran who returned with hardships and many permanent reminders and the pain of that war, the POW/MIA veteran we wait for and whose family and friends are tormented for so, so long not knowing and the fallen veteran who gave his/her life at such a young age leaving their families devastated forever - all had one thing in common and that was to fight for our freedom, our country - we owe them so much and a thank you is where to begin and to never forget them for their gallantry, fortitude and valor. I salute each and every one of them.~~~~ ôI have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faithö. Timothy 2:4:7
