What warm, loving, friendly people they are!  I was hoping for a chance to say hi, maybe shake hands, and I got all that and more.  Both of them wanted to know my connection to the group, so I told them about how my commander used to stand me at attention and try to talk religion at me, having discovered that I was a former member of his church.  Religious persecution was actually named in my award letter for my disabled veteran comp & pen as one of the reasons it was granted.  Anyway, the awards luncheon was excellent, and all the speeches exciting.

How exciting to meet them.  Good for you, and you know what, good for them.  They got to meet you.

Good for you!!!
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands...with tools...with horse sense and science and engineering.

Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen.  - RAH
