Harry Davis and I served together during Desert Storm, he was such a wonderful man and a great soldier. We had some really good times over there, some great conversations. I think of you often. I was just starting my Law enforcement career when you were taken. It was a terrible day. Rest in peace my friend. I know I should have done this sooner but thank you for your dedication, service and sacrifice I hope to see you again someday. God be with your family.
