I immediately jumped on the keyboard and this is what the context of my reply to him looked like .....
There is no need for you to supply me with anything here as far as payment is concerned.
It would be an honor .... and my pleasure .... to do one of these for you in appreciation for your great sacrifice in defense of our country and its freedoms.
I am a stubborn ole' Vietnam Combat Wounded Veteran and I will not take no for an answer here ....
In the very near future I will send one of these to the location that you have specified
May God bless and watch over you and all our warriors there that are in harms way and bring you all back home safely soon. Please know that the majority of us back here are behind our troops 100%.
I just made you an offer you can't refuse and as stated ..... It would indeed be an honor and my pleasure to do one of these for you.
Please convey my heartfelt thanks to all of your comrades there as well and know that you are "all" thought of each day.
Be careful and stay safe!
I await your reply .....
