"Brother, I am at Ft. Leonard Wood (where you went to basic) and tell stories about you all the time. Have to keep you alive in some way. I would have given anything to have you give me my first salute but it did not come to pass. I will leave you a reminder of that day when I get home. I will leave the picture of my first salute on your site."
"I will forever love you...."
Have a suggestion for us?
