Faces from the Wall

08 Nov 2006

I recently found this site and found this name which is also my name. To Gregory's family I say it is an honor to share the same name with a man who gave his life for my freedom to live in this great country. I myself am a veteran of the US Navy. Thank you for giving America a great man who is now serving our Lord God as honorably as he did his country.

From a fellow armed services veteran,
Gregory Scott
