We wouldn’t be badasses without you, and there are truly no words grand enough to express our nation’s gratitude. All I can say is thank you.
I’d like to give a special shout out to Grandaddy (WWII flight surgeon), my great uncle Floyd Beaver (whose book Sailor from Oklahoma is a must read…he writes about his journey from Oklahoma to his time in WWII…including the attack on Pearl Harbor. Seriously. He was there.), my great uncle Circle (who received a purple heart in WWII), my cousin Phillip Balson (he returned from Iraq yesterday!), and my friend Mike Fernandez.
