'Red Shirt' thanks veterans for their service

To the editor:

I have had the privilege all week reading the thank you letters to Doug and his “red shirts” and feel it is time to respond.

I would like to take this time to thank each and every one of the “yellow shirts” (Vets) for giving me the privilege of joining YOU on your trip. It was one of the most humbling trips of my life that I will never forget.

Watching the smiles, laughter, a few tears, and friendships being rekindled and being made made my trip perfect. So from one of the “red shirts,” I would like to say, “THANK YOU” for giving me the experience of  a lifetime.
