“I could not be more proud of what you all put together here. I was there that night and you all still had me on edge wanting to see what was next. I think you told an incredible story about the way we rely on each other and the emotions we all go through from these different perspectives, and I can tell you as much as I have been at peace with everything about this mission and war and injury, you just provided closure to me that did not previously exist. Thank you.”
