I’ll be honest. I don’t think that I’d have had this much courage. I’m not even sure if I’d have had the courage to fight during wartime. I served after Vietnam,. so I’ll never know,. but I have the utmost respect for all who have fought for our country (or currently are serving).

I know exactly what you mean, birdsman. Last night I told Arthur’s daughter that I know that I don’t have what it takes to do what those who serve in the military have to go through.

They amaze me.
