Yeah, me too. But then having a grandson with 2 purple hearts, 100% disability and still on SF duty I understand.

We have had a number of Nate's team here at the house, and met more of them at Nate's house some years ago.

Their dedication to country, God, and family is incredible! Not to mention their dedication to each other.
