Thank you for raising such a fine young man. We are indebted to Chad for his courage, his service and for his sacrifice. It is because of your son, and others like him, that we enjoy freedoms envied by most of the world and by most peoples throughout history. I pray that your son'* sacrifice will remind us that freedom comes at a high cost, and that through his example we are strengthened to carry on the fight for liberty. May God bless and comfort you and your family.
