Thanks Mike! Outstanding.

I will be remembering my father who passed away in 1981. He was a combat pilot during World War 2. He flew B-29's out of Guam. Flew on the very last mission of the war, lost an engine and had to land in Iwo Jima. By the time they got back to Guam the next day the war was over.

Both of my parents instilled a sense of love and country into our family, and for that we are forever grateful.

Semper Fi!
