      Thanks Dave – it’s pretty amazing when people like Rick come from your home town. I didn’t know Rick until Ann Reichle introduced me to him. I am totally awed by his service in Vietnam and so glad he was recognized with the Silver Star.

    Dave, Thank you so much for writing this article about Rick! He and my oldest brother Chris were/are great friends. I have known Rick my whole life. America will never be able to repay the debt our service members are owed. When I left the corporate world, he was my Broker with Realty One… never a day went by that he did not offer something positive, insightful or humorous. God Bless our country, you and your family…

      Terry – thanks for taking the time to read Rick’s story and to leave a comment. It’s hard to believe someone like Rick grew up just a few streets away. I’m looking forward to meeting him in person for the first time in October. I hope you are doing well. V/r, Dave Grogan
