    Thank you for the kind words

    On May 13, my car was parked on Curtis Avenue here in Rutland. I am a Vietnam veteran and have a Purple Heart plate (PH489). Under the windshield wiper, was the nicest note from what looked like a young lady’s handwriting. It read: “Thank you for serving our country. Thank you for all of the selfless fighting you did and suffered for my life to be what it is. God bless you and yours. Thank you so very much. Have a beautiful day and life.”

    I have been home now from Nam for 44 years and I have to say that this young lady, a complete stranger, said the nicest things that have ever been directed to me for my service to my country. Thank you, young lady, and God bless you and your family.

    Welcome home, Phil.
