      Thanks for the note. Not sure why my provider struggled with your email. There are some things I can’t control unfortunately. That is awesome that your son served on the same boat you did. I can’t imagine that is very common. You had a remarkable career and as a citizen of this great country, I want to thank you for all that you and your family have done.
