Remarks:   Winnebago Elder once said, "We honor our warriors because they are brave, and because by seeing death on the battlefield they come to appreciate the greatness of life".  You are a MUSTANG until death.  The experiences you encountered while serving molded you into the person you are today.  How you have lived with the memories has determined your quality of life.  May you have a great life. I am proud to have served with each and every one of you.
