On behalf of myself and all you folks out there who made it possible with your generosity, I got Butch his new teeth (upper plate) that the Hospital threw away last November. Seems they didn’t think he needed them any more in ICU because he was starting to do the chicken. Considering what he survived at LZ Cork in 1969, I think the chowderheads at the hospital underestimated what it takes to snuff an 11 Bravo with a CIB.
I would also like to thank Jerri and Joey Berlanga of Parkland Dentures for bending over backwards to get Butch in so soon and manufacture them in a hurry. Four visits later and Butch is now armed and dangerous. I hear a Frag Order for Applebee’s is now in motion and will report the BDA back when I hear it. Butch intimated his parachute is packed and he’s back on flight status.
Thanks again to the generosity of all you who contributed to make this happen. This is why Veterans are my favorite people. They are not selfish and often concern themselves about other Veterans to their own detriment. We are a very small club-we six percenters- and you cannot come back late in life and decide to join.
