“Hello Sam, I just got off the phone with Don Clancy. He received his copy of your book with the inscription that you wrote to him. He was very pleased with the recognition that you accorded him and is proud to display it and share with his fellow veterans. Thank you for your kindness and eloquence. He is quite deserving. I also received my copy. Your book is quite an intensive research endeavor, considering the minute details that you have included over the span of history of the 5th Regiment. Every person who has ever served in the 5th Regiment should have a copy of this book for personal reference and for a sense of pride in our military heritage. Thank you for all of your efforts to provide this very valuable piece of history for us to cherish.”
