Dave and Ernie of the Northwest PVA, I am truly grateful for your friendship and invitation to the games. You have both been nothing but generous to me since I was crowned at the PVA in February. Ernie, I appreciate your warmth and humor and Dave, like I said before, great opening speech I am sure everyone was moved like I was by your sincerity. To Matthew, thank you including me in the opening ceremony, your work and efforts on behalf of the Vets did not go unnoticed. I am sure Colorado has big shoes to fill at the 2010 games.
