SAM MESSER: ACCOLADE FOR IWVPA

I love your site and try and stop by to see all that the bros put out; I have shed a few tears reading many and have printed some off and posted them at our local baseball fields here in Olathe, Ks. Many great things have been said about most all.

I Don’t Come Cheap” (by Randy Richmond) was my last post for our Memorial Weekend Tournament, I saw two men, who turned out to be Nam Vets, put their fingers to lips and plant a kiss on the poem. I spoke to each after I saw this and each had a tear in their eyes. I was so proud to have brought some pride to these Bros. One retired Master SGT stood and saluted, 32 years in the Army, now an umpire and that poem made him stand straight and TALL.

Thanks for the site
