Les, just letting you know you are sooo missed.
I think of you often. I was instructing a basic Patrol Rifle Class recently and as I looked upon the young faces sitting before me I thought of you and how you were always so eager to learn and how bad you wanted to pass on all the lessons you received.
Miss you a lot my friend..........
