I was very fortunate to be honored today by Chairman Rob Frost in the 2016 Annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon. I would be remiss not to mention the other honorees. Al Oberst who served in the United States Army. Ross Embescia who served in the United States Marine Corps. Ken Wolnik who served in the United States Coast Guard.
I appreciate the honor and kind words from everyone who was there. In all seriousness my thoughts are to men and women who are wearing the uniform today. I was very lucky. I came home in one piece and have never had to walk into a VA hospital. I am whole and healthy. That cannot be said for many of our veterans and will not be true for those serving today.
