And the ability.
And to be able to do something.
Whatever it is Travis talk about all the guys have talked about it but to be able to do it.
Without saying it had they've commanded a little bit help and to do it on your own your relieving the pressure from them while giving yourself you're an independence -- -- -- give yourself.

I'm sitting at the listening here and I'm overcome with emotion and I know them.
And their needs are tremendous.
It will give him back something and that was taken away from.
But every one and the talking about.
Not themselves again because this is what they do they serve they've given so much for their country and never ask for anything now and they're talking about it helping.
So they can go out go shopping where they can go out and go do something to give them back some of their independence all -- These guys are bravest they've given so much for our country I think it's the least that we could do.
The other 99 to -- that doesn't serve.
