How great hearing from you, and thanks for sending this ironically truthful example of the pithy excuses we hear from some folks these days about the flimsy problems mentioned. What wonderful examples of courage and bravery from our very finest, not only in words but by their selfless deeds exemplified in these pictures. God Bless each and every one of them!
Dot and I think of you and Joan so often--and remember the exciting times we shared as fellow VP's at NDIA under Gen. Skibbies' outstanding leadership. I miss him dearly! You were one of (if not) the first I met when I joined, and it was great working with you. Are you both still the great world-traveler's, or are you slowing down and staying home a bit?
Iím dusting off my tux as Dot and I are going to NDIA's black tie Gen. Eisenhower Award Dinner next month at the Ritz Carlton and are extra excited about it as this yearís award is being given to Gen. David Petreaus. I can think of no one who deserves it more! If by chance you are also going it would be great seeing you there. Seems we otherwise only meet at funerals lately.
Dot joins me in sending you both our very best.
