VANCE AIR FORCE BASE OKLAHOMA Aug. 30 2009
Thank you very much for traveling to Vance AFB. Your message is on target for our young audience…we introduce Lieutenants and Airmen to our Air Force here at Vance and the message you provide is very important for them to hear. Hopefully everyone learned from your mistakes and will not put themselves or others in harm’s way. It takes a lot of guts to stand up in front of strangers and tell your story…but the happy ending and message is powerful.
We appreciate your support of the military, especially in time of war and call you a true patriot who loves his country and contrymen paying the price for his freedom. You are welcome back to Vance anytime.
