Susan Belote Nacy....... Carolyn Howard I have never met you in person! But what I have to say about you is that I look up to you and admire you so much for what you have done for my husband Bill Nacy when he served in Afghanistan and for his friends that served with him. You are an Angel sent from God above to look over our Service Men and Women in harms way!! You have taught me that there are still good people in this world. I strive daily to be a better person because of you. I love you and consider you a friend for life. Bill and I have a goal and it is to someday soon be able to meet you in person and Thank You. People that question you for what you are doing are only really question themselves! Without you there would be a lot of Service Men and Women feeling alone!! God Bless you my friend.
