He has written two new books and donated the proceeds to the Fisher House.

I have a handwritten letter from him and an autographed copy of "I'd go with the helmet, Ray" that he sent me. Pretty cool.

On a side note, it's silly how difficult it is to get to speak to a person about donating items, services, or time to these organizations. Every contact I have made thus far is wanting credit card numbers or checks sent, but they don't seem too interested in talking in person to take donations of tangible items. I do understand how very expensive things are to run, but I also know that the human element and and personal interaction can be so very important, too. Oh, well. I guess I just show up there in person and start asking.

I was always on the lookout for a Stars and Stripes in the sandbox to cut out Doonesbury. I had several taped up next to the rifle rack above the cargo door of the M577 that I drove.
