Hey Dad. I am looking for a fallen officer (DC)for one of my recruit classes here. I always come back to see you here though. I wish I could tell you about all the things I am doing now at work. If I could tell you in person it wouldn't be so hard. ...
I am so glad that I can come to the wall and bring my recruits and share you with them. Miss you everyday for always!
