In our current troubled times for the brave men and women who wear the badge of honor I wanted you and your family to know that many of us greatly appreciate your sacrifice. 26 years may have passed but you are not forgotten Gary. Unfortunately, I did not have the honor of knowing you long as I was just a trainee assigned to Troop F when you were killed all those years ago but your sacrifice left an indelible mark on me forever.
