“I am humbled, appreciative and grateful. My service was during Vietnam when many people, including some of our own family members, opposed the war. When we returned, many of us were alone at the airports. To now be viewed in a positive light is gratifying. We thank those who appreciate our service, because the price of freedom is always high.” W. Blackmon
