Thanks for the article and for the Honor Flight program

Editor:I sincerely thank the Statesboro Herald and Julie Lavender for the flattering article re my recent trip to tour the war veterans' memorials in Washington, D.C. I am also grateful for the many favorable comments I have received from several people who took the time to read it. I was truly honored by the Honor Flight Savannah organization, and the trip would not have been possible without their kindness.I want to iterate that I am not a hero, although I served with some very brave men, and the group with whom I traveled to Washington are indeed heroes, each and all. Nor does anyone owe me anything for my service; I served because this is my country, and I simply did my duty.
