At the Fort Wayne VA


Gentlemen:  A couple of years ago at the VA hospital in Fort Wayne, IN, I saw a sailors hat... it Said USS Indianapolis.  I am a Marine, but I was raised in Indianapolis, and I know the story.  I couldn't believe that right there, in front of me, wrapped in the fragile form of age, was a seaman from the USS Indianapolis. 

I'm a Marine... but in my heart I carry a huge special place for all of you. 

And you know what?  When we get told "Thank you for your service" there is now a neat response.  Simply look the giver in the eye and say "You were worth it"... sort of ties it, and us, all together.

Brothers... "Thank you for your service"
