you are very welcome sir !

 

A VERY SPECIAL VETERAN . I AM VERY PROUD TO KNOW 

I have know this veteran for some time as a collector of the Viet-Nam war , I new he was a vet but not his story, Bill shared his story of his service in Viet-nam with me a few days ago. I feel it deserves a special place on this site. 

Bill Hukill tells his own story in the letter he sent me with a newspaper picture of him in the hospital . I consider myself honored to know him.
