    We received this very gracious thank you note from the best friend of the Stevens, who initiated the mission request on behalf of SSGT Stevens’ wife, Katy:

    I just wanted to thank you all for coming today. That really meant a lot to Katy. She was amazed that you came, and was truly grateful for the plaque as well as taking the time out of your day to stand guard while her husband was laid to rest. Logan (the youngest) LOVED your flags and all the patches on your vests! He kept wanting to go outside to look at all of you. Losing a loved one is hard, thankfully our military family is everywhere and never ending.

    Thank you so much for being part of the day with all of us. We truly appreciate all of you bearing the sleet and rain in honor of Andrew.

    Sincerely,

    Dominique Baltzley
