Ted, although we never met our professional roads are very similar. I'll do my best to honor your service by carrying the torch a little prouder while I have it. We've kept a good eye on the place and will keep it up until the next generation comes on duty. Thanks for your service and sacrifice to our nation. Thanks for paving the road for which I and my coworkers walk.
