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

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:
