He said, "The friends that i severed with that are no longer with us. As a survivor of missing the shot and shell, I feel obligated to uphold them memory and keep their memory alive. Just grateful that the veteran community itself is just a family no matter what. It’s not just us veterans, it’s always the wives and the children and the families that are a part of it also."
