Thanks Matt for recognizing all veterans. I was 19 and 1yr. away from being drafted, when my 67 was built. We visited the Nephew in Sevierville 18 yrs. ago. He took us to Smoky MT. Knife Works. 2 great places! Dick

Soldiers sacrifice so much for our way of life. The least I can do is thank them and show my support.

My dad graduated high school in '72. He went to college for about a 1 1/2 semesters, but wasn't able to keep up with school and make a living, so he quit to work full time while my mom continued her schooling. The war ended, or stalemated, and the draft stopped. My parents both knew a guy at the draft board office. He later told them that dad's name was in the next group of draftees to be selected.

If you ever make it back to Sevierville, give me a shout. I'm always up for meeting fellow truck nuts like myself. Also, the Knife Works has grown since then, and they've added a gun store inside as well.
