Col. Butler,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country when you served in the U.S. Army-especially during WW II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars as well as in the Dominican Republic. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
