Thank you for your service sir.  Not just the Raid, which was HUGE and I'm sure many thought was a suicide mission, but all your contributions to the war effort and beyond.

I hope the the other 79 welcomed him home with a goblet of 1896 vintage Cognac.

I would have like to attended the memorial at Randolph:  https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/04/18/a-last-salute-to-a-raider-air-force-bids-farewell-to-lt-col-dick-cole/

But doing it on a Thursday, and not a Friday??  What moron came up with that idea.  Yes, I understand the significance of the date.  It's still a dumb idea.
