For your service to this nation and to your Air Force family, I thank you.

It is truly disgraceful that the thing which murdered you was set free after only 7 short years. He nearly took the life of TWO brave men and was then let loose.

Your true family away from work, has every right and reason to be proud of you.

God Bless and may you continue to forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
