Matt Thomas | Operation Welcome You Home
  My sincere welcoming to home for you. Glad that you are feeling better. I am a Air Force Veteran who served during the Vietnam Conflict but in a support function. Thank you for all you have done for us, and our prayers are that you get better each day.

Mike Wimsatt


Welcome back home from your battle in the hospital. I want to personally thank you for your service for our country in Vietnam. It was people like you who did what they had to do so we can have the freedom that we experience here in the USA today. Many people are grateful for your service and the part of your life that you gave up to serve. May you have a wonderful time with your family and friends.
