As most of you know I've just returned from Italy. While I was there I spent several days with the MOST AMAZING SOLDIERS on the planet. They treated me like a queen every second of every day and night. I left there wondering how in the world I am fortunate enough to know these men, their wives, girlfriends and families. I also left there with enough great memories and new friendships to last a lifetime.
Today I received the following (see photos below)
I would like to say Thank You from the bottom of my heart and within the depth of my sole to every Sky Soldier past and present for this honor that you have bestowed upon me. I could never love, respect or appreciate a group of Soldiers the way I do you and your loved ones.
When I read the names on the roster of the Honorary Members of the 2-503 Infantry Regiment I genuinely don't know what to say beyond "THANK YOU for this immense honor. As we say where I'm from, "that's some tall cotton." I am truly humbled and honored.
P. S. THANK YOU for not requiring me to jump out of an airplane. I think that is best left to you experts - you ROCK PARATROOPERS!
