Please accept my warmest gratitude for the outstanding weekend I just experienced 10-12 August with the Vet’s with Guitars from Clarksburg. Our experience was definitely a true highlight in my lifetime. A huge thanks to ALL both behind the scenes and also those leading. To MAJ GEN West a hearty BRAVO ZULU from an old tincan sailor. You sir are a great inspiration to all of us. It is not often one comes across anyone so knowledgeable and spiritual at the same time, even more rare a retired Marine Corps (Mustang) MAJ GEN. You and all those that contribute to this endeavor are to greatly commended and acknowledged. There will definitely be many “STONES IN YOUR CROWN.” As I sign off I cannot leave without expressing from my heart, SEMPER FI! May God keep you in the hollow of his hand.
