My old friend,
because of you, I (and my wife) both ride Harleys.
Because of you, I served over 21 years in the active military. (I even made it to SSgt and Capt!!)
Because of you, my daughter is now at Air Force pilot training.
Because of you, the unbroken line of service to our country continues.
Because of you, I still have a hard time visiting The Wall.
Bill, you are missed, but not forgotten.
Be at peace and ride safe.

There's none better in the business than a Navy Corpsman ..."
