Future Plans? It is my wish to stay closer to my loved ones and friends.   That I respect and love them for who they are.   I will continue to stay dedicated to Rolling Thunder, a watchdog that compels the U.S. Government to account for all Missing in Action and Prisoners of War, and not to leave these brave men and women on the battlefield as they did our generation in Vietnam.   This Memorial Day in Washington D.C., we will again make that message clear.   No one loves this country more than I do, and that is exactly the reason I do this. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
