Well I mean would you do is is absolutely amazing and there's countless lives and family members of the people who greatly benefit from what you do and I just have to say thank you so much for that and and what I would like to know. Is You know what are some of the more kind of specific resources that the foundation authors to military members and veterans and their family well the foundation had to resist a lot of temptation in areas that were not related to the family and <hes> we didn't do that. We stayed in lane and because of that what we did evolve when we did grow we grew in ways that would be supportive of veterans fans not doing something that had no relationship at all and wasting resources on valuable money <hes> that we obviously need it formed a was actually married. You'll Myers the wife of the former chairman of the joints USA stuff that help us on them called hero miles and hero miles miles is basically a program where people can donate Osu's frequent flyer miles to us and we will in turn buy tickets airline tickets for family members to go back and forth the government government as we know.
