To the editor:
"Thanks" does not cover my appreciation for the work and dedication so many people gave for a most wonderful Sept. 7. Everything and everyone was great. From the National Guard, firemen, Ron Newsum and crew, doctor, nurses, guardians, to the fantastic crowd waiting for our return home - all was perfect. It was really awesome to have the plane land and see so many people - young and old - waving flags and cheering.
My hope is that the tradition will continue until all eligible veterans can experience the same wonderful day we did.
