I am grateful for the service Mr. Hoffman provided our county. Without him and others like him we might have lost our freedoms.

Many veterans that have experienced tragedy and turmoil find it hard to relive the exhausting elements of war. They want to live a peaceful, restful life without all the loud, fast pace modern world has. Simple things as sitting in a tree stand watching the world go by. The birds singing, squirrels dancing though the trees not being bother by anyone. That the peace of nature gives them the reassurance they are safe at home.
The world around them is full a violence and mayhem that they had to endure for time in the combat world. In enjoy listen to the music, see the kids playing in the park. Just sitting on the front porch doing nothing in the summer evening.
Glad he received his medals after all these long years of not being recognized for the major accomplishments his legacy deserves.
