Good morning troops, got a new Laptop for Christmas, in the process of getting it up and running so I can dump the old PC with windows 7 on it, it's about 12 years old and very slow !

thank you Jim.

The most eciting for me was the widow of the Vietnam GI who died from agent orange and said "I want to bring him home". 

I had the lights go out and a girl from the HS Choral sang "Bring him Home" from Le Miz.  It brought the house down.

Harold, I did watch your video.  Terrific job in editing the footage and applying the music to the tribute to all the veterans at your location.  I really enjoyed the entire production.
