      Mark,
      Enjoy the hike....the field is pretty this time of year with the
      fall foliage.

      If you happen to be up in The Cornfield area at all, please pay
      your respects at the Texas monument for me.

      Your humble servant,
      Gerry Mayers

      "I know of no fitter resting-place for a soldier than the field
      on which he has nobly laid down his life." --General Robert
      Edward Lee
