    I am chairman of the Golden Gate National Cemetery Good Turn Flag Planting committee, was keynote speaker at the Cypress Lawn Memorial Day ceremony, attended several 101st Airborne events, and marched in the San Mateo Downtown Parade. With all that, my favorite moment of the weekend was receiving the ‘Veteran’ card from you. Thank you for making me feel welcome home!

      I am honored to have met you, and been able to give you a Kard. I wish I could given a Kard 4 Veteran to every Veteran. You let me know the occasion, and I will try to be there to provide a thank you Kard 4 Veteran to them all.
