    Thank you so much for your service to our great country. I put 7 1/2 years in the army during Viet Nam, so I am very aware of your sacrifices. Hopefully your life will be back to normal soon. We are here for you, and if we can help in any way, don't hesitate to ask. Best of luck to you and your family.
