To the editor:

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Doug Bishop, the Red Shirt volunteers, American Legion Post 111, members of the motorcycle escort, businesses and individuals who took time to express their gratefulness, and for the time, effort and finances needed to give the veterans the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C.

This trip was truly an honor and a humbling experience. The Mail Call brought back so many memories and was a perfect ending. Please know this entire experience was one I sincerely will remember for the rest of my life.

Thank you!

Gordon Baker
