Operation Handshake MBS International Airport Comment

  1. Today when I returned home your honor guard recognized myself and others for our service. Thank You as this was the first time that I was thanked for my service since being discharged in 1977. I am proud of all our veterans and your efforts are appreciated more than you will ever know.
