JP's visitation on Sunday and his
funeral yesterday, I wanted to
say thank you. Your people
made all the difference!
Seeing you at both the visitation
and funeral gave me an
overwhelming sense of patriotism
and pride. I consider
myself a patriotic person, but
you really made me so proud to be
I have a son
serving with the 10th MTN. DIV.
in Afghanistan (he knew JP) and a
son-in-law serving with the 519th
MP BN in Iraq. God forbid,
should anything happen to either
one of them, you would be one of
my first contacts. I just
cannot explain how moved I was by
your presence. You
exhibited what makes this country
great. It gave me a great
feeling of comfort and pride to
know you were there.
Again, thank you
from the bottom of my heart.
