I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to my family, friends, KMPH Channel 26, KFSN Channel 30, KGPE Channel 47, The Fresno Bee and the whole community for making my homecoming from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operations Enduring Freedom very special. After 36 years in the military, this was one of the highlights of my career. I'm very humbled and it's great to be home.
The outpouring of well-wishers expressing their gratitude for serving my country has been overwhelming. People calling, writing letters and e-mailing me or my family just to say thanks means a great deal to us.
A special thanks to my sister, Dorothy Tristan, for contacting the news media.
Again, thank you, Fresno! God bless our troops, their families and God bless America.
