I had just watched you on 'Hornets Nest' on Amazon. I just want to say Thank You for your service & sacrifice! In that short hour & a half, I felt as though I was beside you on the battlefield. As if you were a brother & a friend. I felt the helplessness thereafter along with tremendous sadness that still follows me. That was two days ago I watched it. Again, thank you for your courage, bravery, service & ultimate sacrifice so that we ALL can enjoy our freedom here. Thanks also to that documentary for introducing you to me. You will forever be in my prayers, never forgotten. R.I.P.
