John, It's been 15 years. As your sargeant you know you were a pain in the ass BUT you were my pain in the ass and that night will forever be with me. Between the dogs and the kids you were one of a kind. Your picture is still hung up at JA - Buffet and it makes me smile every time I go there.
Thinking of You, Mike
