Mr. Berry is a true hero. He is soft spoken and not one to brag about his past.

Your glass is still half empty, I see. You do understand don't you that you are not required to counter every positive with a negative comment? Cheer up.

Mr. Berry is of the generation that served and sacrificed all that they had to give. Subsequent generations have been more self-centered and considerably less admirable as a whole.

Thank you sir. Well done.

You and your brothers set the bar high, if only those that follow can continue to meet your standards.

A GRATEFUL NATION SALUTES YOU AND YOUR FELLOW BUDDIES.

MAY GOD BLESS ALL WHO SERVED, AND CONTINUE TO DO SO. MAYBE SOME DAY THE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD WILL REALIZE, AND EXERCISE, AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE HORRORS OF ARMED CONFLICTS.

more to come
sez you

Yeh I get that, but on the rare occasion I will give credit where credit is do, in this case its not the guy himself I condemn, my own father was part of the effort, its the lame groups who feel a need to applaud the sacrifices of others for their own sense of fulfillment.
