The following is a letter from tireless worker Floyd Sears who has spent many years coordinating efforts by military retirees to receive promised benefits not given. My response follows his letter.

To: All concerned about

Since I announced that “Everybody has to quit at some point in time and I guess this is my time.” I've received a flood of e-mails concerning whether or not my web site will remain on the Internet.

I have no plans to take it down.

The web site currently has 557 objects which includes web pages and images. I need to point out that the web site was not planned… it simply evolved as various military retiree medical care events unfolded. The web page at is a history of the way I saw the events unfold.

I would like to take this opportunity to clarify what I meant by “quit”. I've always heard that one should lead, follow, or get out of the way. I'm more or less getting out of the way.

I know I speak for a large majority when I say that you have done an admiral job for retirees and I hope everyone appreciates the incredible amount of time and effort you have given in our behalf… and for the benefits we have received as a consequence of that effort.

If a medal for Distinguished Service to Retirees could be issued, you would certainly deserve to be one of the first in line to receive it!

Thank you so very much for the continuing care and concern you have provided for your fellow retired service personnel and their families over these many years.
