Nice tribute... my dad went to Vietnam, and came home safe and sound thank goodness. I am grateful that I never had to go into a war situation, and am also grateful to those who do it on our country's behalf.

Super tribute to our brave men and women. It’s always amazing me (and makes me so proud) to see these soldiers knowing they volunteered for this duty. They volunteer to risk there lives to keep the rest of us safe, I only wish I was 1/2 the person they are. Thanks Richard.
