What an honor to revisit the country you once helped to defend. We have the watch now sir, you are relieved.

Thank you for your service :patriot:

I've had the pleasure of meeting several WWII servicemen and a WASP. All had unique stories with the common core of patriotism, bravery, duty, and humility. God's speed to them and all current and past members of our military. :patriot:
