Jerry Thomas - Hilary,

Jennifer Gunn is my daughter. I am so proud of her, Philip, my grandchildren and all the men and women who are serving our great Nation. The sacrifices they make, as well as those made by the families who stay behind, are more than most will ever comprehend. I have been a part of the military for over 41 years now and seeing these pictures means more to me than words can say. Thank you for taking them and sharing them with us. You have a real talent. To all the Rockets, God Speed!!
