Posting this for our ROCKY.

============================

 

M-1 The program was Tuesday evening and the house was packed,(over500)

I was the only WW 11 vet. After the Emcee finishedtalking about me and she

read the card I carry about the 34th. I GOT A STANDING OVATION !!!! MAN

I CAN'T DESCRIBE THE FEELING I GOT WHEN I SAW EVERYONE STAND

AND CLAPPED AND CLAPPED AND CLAPPED. My thoughts only-----

here an American of Mexican descent,(latino) was recieved with high honor.

Program was sponsered by FM Station KFKF 94.1 Roque

Dale/Mary,

 

I also want to thank you for a wonderful evening. It warms my heart to see the honor bestowed to all of the veterans recognized last night. I have seen and heard of so many that are suffering and have a hard time when they return from the many wars they have fought to keep us safe. I don't think we can do enough to show our gratitude. However, last night, you both made a big difference to all the honorees. Keep up the great work!

 

God has blessed us with you,

Rocky,

 

You were the hit of the evening!! Remind me very much of my grandfather! He was 36 when they sent him over to Europe. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope we see you again down the road!

Rocky,

 

You are my hero. My dad if he were alive today would be 86…turning 87 in February. You remind me of him.

He had a great sense of humor and a kind heart.

 

===================

 

Rocky,

 

Your email this morning is what our Summer of Freedom program at KFKF is all about…to honor men like yourself.

Thank you so much for your service to this wonderful country and for sharing a little of yourself with us last night.

 

Your email made my morning!

 

God Bless and take care.

Just a short note to see if this gets to you. Last night was beautiful.

The standing ovation, I cannot describe the feeling it gave me. Thank you

for having this old "dogface vet" on your program. Rocky

M-1, Marion, thank you for posting this. I think this puts a thought in my

mind, that this must give me the ultimate feeling if gratitude for the way

in which I have been recieved. So many things I would like to say, but I

don't think they will sound right. With you,,Marion posting the above does

give me great pleasure. thank you. Roque

 

ps-I will e/m you and write what my card says.---- :armata_PDT_01:
