I saw this on the news last night and thought how heartfelt it must have been to be able to fly your fathers remains home. RIP Col. Knight :patriot:

I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on.
I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
