:FlagAm: Sir, you now truly have God as your copilot.

I thank you for your dedicated service to this country.  Men the likes of you are extremely hard to find, even more so now when you are needed more than ever.

God bless.

If God is your co pilot you're in the wrong seat.

Col. Robert Scott wrote the book titled, "God Is My Co-Pilot".


Bud Anderson and Chuck Yeager were pretty close friends, though I think Bud had more kills.  RIP, Sir! Thank you for your dedicated service! RIP!
