    Captain Newborn,
    God Bless you and your staff and all of my veterans brothers and sisters. Your reward is yet to come, and it will come. Your work uplifts history, and guides paths for the future of these veterans.

    I intend to visit Next Level more often in the future. There is nothing in the world that can compare to veterans even just sitting around talking and listening. I try to do a lot of listening to the older vets; I learn stuff and even more stuff. Mr. Fanney has done justice in telling these stories, which deserves to be read daily by lots of people; thanks.

    (Captain Newborn, I fixed the seat belt strap in your van yesterday. Gwenette and Mr. J. Alston and Mr. Taylor and others, thanks for support you gave me yesterday.)

    (US Air Force & Air National Guard vet since 1965)
