Mark: Shortly after retiring from the US Air Force my family and I settled down in Monroe, MI. A few days after moving into our new home my youngest daughter (then 7 years old) came home from the neighbors with a mixed breed puppy. Fourteen years later we are just a few days away from having to have this wonderful companion to sleep. Annie is her name and she has been a faithful companion and member of our family for a long time now. My heart aches when I think about the schedule time to take her to the vet even though I know that it will end her suffering. Never one to complain this dear dog has endured kidney stones and a multitude of other medical problems. Never once complaining and always continuing her role as the guardian and protector of her family. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for “rescuing Sprite” because it has allowed me to better understand and accept the process that my family and I are enduring. I do not look forward to the day when this dear companion is no longer there when I come home from a busy day on the job.

Thanks Mark for your book and your commitment to our wonderful country! I listen to you almost every night on Sirius radio! God Bless You and your family

Bill from MI
