Congratulations to Dad on his retirement and survival of the jungle. Brian, .....stay extremely alert out there, and keep your back covered at all times. Today is not like the 25 years before that your Dad served. Served as a LEO 1963-1994 in a big jungle. My best wishes for a safe and successful career. JJ
