Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!

Just walked in....I sent my Dad downstairs to get the punch. 10 minutes of ice chipping and I need to give my back a break.

God Bless you good, Mac. Good night and rest well. Thanks for helping honor our troops, past and present. Thank you for your service to our country.

We do and we will do what we can to protect them from the
“government” that has forgotten them. I’m sure they feel
abandoned in the field right now! :(
