I can't begin to put into words or begin describing my appreciation to everyone for the attention, generosity, and support they've given me over the past few weeks. Not to mention what you all do for all the troops. I was blessed this past weekend to be able to meet up with Helldog and the Avila Clan for lunch. These guys treated McCormick and myself like no man deserves. Thank you. Each day when faced with challenges and decisions I look to times like this to guide my conscience and not let down people like this and you. It's you all that force me to perform and not let down. In no way should you refer to us as heros, it's embarrassing to think that I should be given such the honor. Just a lucky individual that has the support of my men, the burden of not letting down America and duty, and lady luck.

Helldog, you are the man. I tell you it was great to sit down and meet with you. Share your views on many things and actually be humbled by your sense of morality. The work you put into organizing this was enormous, a special thanks.

Avila Clan, it was an honor to meet with you and your families. You have a special closeness that is to be envied. I wish you all the best in everything to come.

Ed. A special thank you. You are near the top of a long list of the classiest men I've ever come across. It was completely unexpected that you show this type of hospitality and generosity to us. Especially McCormick. He was amazed, he just wanted to say hello and was in the area. Most unexpected. If there is anything I can ever do for you please don't hesitate to ask.

I will be headed overseas very shortly and my postings will fall short. I will stay in touch from time to time. Thank you all again, I am humbled and in awe of the unity by everyone here at AR15.

I am so thankful that we were giving the opportunity, to show in a small way how thankful and how much we all appreciate, all that is involved into going overseas and fight for the freedom that we enjoy at home. It is us that THANK YOU.

I only hope that soon we will be given the opportunity to meet you in person, and please remember that you now have family all over this great land.

I for one feel extremely lucky for being given the chance to honor a couple of AMERICAS FINEST. Stay safe over there and come home to your wife and child safely.

It is MY utmost gratitude that be bestowed upon you, sir.
Thank you for your service and thank you for doing a job that I wished I could have done.

I may be a lowly engineer in WI, but I wanted you to know that one Cheesehead appreciates the freedom you are providing to me and my family.
