Hey Darren!

Wow, it's been a long time. This is David Forman. Remember me? You were best man at my, uh, first wedding to Kay.

I was thinking about you and Googled your name. Saw you were the winner on Junkyard Wars. Congratulations. Saw your picture on the flight deck of what I hope is a Boeing aircraft of some type (757?). I work for Boeing now in El Segundo. That's cool that you turn wrenches on our stuff now!

Please email me back when you get a chance. Maybe we can hook up and catch up on things.

Take care.

Dear Don

Jay asked if I would write you, and said you were down a little bit. Don

I can say I have been their and done that. I served in the Army for over

24 years and I have been retired now for 13 Years. Missing home, a girl

friend, or just friends and family. You have to keep up your spirit and

mind, so you make it back home. I served from Vietnam,Panama, Grenada,

Haiti and Desert Storm and I had to keep my mind staight, so I could come

home to my wife and family. I can tell you that their are many Americans

who know that you are a Hero's and we want live Hero's. Just remember a

few things, God Love you, Your extended family loves you, you are fighting

a just cause, no matter what anyone ever says, Remember your combat

training and practice it often when you are not in combat. It will save

you more than once. Just remember you are loved by God. If you need to

talk to someone email me.
