24. Please send your son my thanks.

I'm not sure how to express how much I appreciate his efforts.
If it helps any, I just completed 20 years in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve. I was on an extended active duty contract for 7 of those years and one of the reasons I became persona non grata at what was then MSO Mobile (Alabama) was during a ATFP (anti-terrorism/force protection) presentation put together by an third class petty officer. He tried to use Greenpeace and SSCS as examples of domestic terrorists. I reacted before I thought as said in front of the entire command that they did not fit the definition of terrorists. I think things would have gone very badly for me that day, but the head of the Planning Department said that he didn't see them as terrorists.
Also at my retirement I essentially implied that the USCG was choosing corporations over their integrity by arresting/tracking these groups rather than investigating their legitimate claims.
