Rest George, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.

Thank you for your service to this nation.

I would have never succeeded in bootcamp we're it not for Dad's advice. He told me it was just a test. The key was to keep my mouth shut and listen and I would do just fine. He stepped up to care for Ashley & Shannon when I trained and later got recalled. The girls loved their PeePaw Saunders. He cooked their favorite meals. They collected coins and often watched sports together. I used to love watching boxing matches with Dad as a little girl . I love you Daddy! Miss you.
