    I too salute you sir for your outstanding military service to our country, and I do not want this to be construed as demeaning, but I still don't know why the media has to constantly point out the divisional aspects of being an 'American'. Vietnamese American, Black African American, Chinese American, Japenese American, etc. instead of just the merits of being an 'American'. I believe this continues to be adversarially demeaning to all of us. Again I salute you on 'taking to the field an attaining the rank of brigadier general'.
