That is how I knew Jack Dunn
. I missed his funeral because I was deployed for Katrina relief. A man that was a winner of the DSC and
DFC - and he made sure he wrote me
supportive letters and cards when I was deployed to Bosnia and Afghanistan. My whole extended family is full of people like this, and they sure give you plenty examples to follow. So many men and women of my family have come from the plains of Iowa to be soldiers (or sailors
, right Dad?) scholars, teachers, doctors...I have a B.A., M.A. and a J.D., I have served abroad peacekeeping in Bosnia, and in wartime in Afghanistan - and I have only just
earned a seat at the table. So long Uncle Jack, we won't forget you or what you did.
