As I sit in my black & white listening to the radio, waiting...waiting for God knows what...I read your story and I feel the dedication and service you most likely felt many years ago when you responded to that call after sitting and listening...ever ready, ever vigilant, a true hero and guardian. You are remembered and you are cherished...RIP SIR
