A special letter was received from the former Joint Chiefs of Staff – General Pace – when we helped a WWII veteran in need…our dear Charlie Trapp…RIP – found in the slums of Pensacola, Florida…forgotten until we united and wrapped him in support . It was an amazing moment as the whole country united with us to remind our World War II hero he would never be forgotten again :
