    Ron, with your service in the war, I would like to thank you for your service for your country as well as its Allies. Thank you for what you have done, and I too would like to wish you a Happy Hannukah.

    Sincerely,
    David

    Precisely my intention, Ron. I grew up in a small Southern town and my best friend, still is, was Jewish. Our parents rarely went to church or a Synagogue but insisted we went. So one week we went to the Episcopal Church and the next the Synagogue. I am not very religious but those years were rather wonderful times to me .. While you were in the war I was just a child, but thanks to soldiers like you we are free today. I think I emerged from those years, more thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable. To this day I have a Menorah., now in use.

    And thank you for the Christmas wishes.
