Greetings Jeff, I have completed the update on LTC Hall. I sent you a reply earlier and then noticed it was to a "non reply" e-mail. I'm new and still learning but I want to get it right, especially since I'm a Veteran myself. Thank you for your assistance and have a great rest of your week!

Good morning,

This profile has Project Member stickers for World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. (Wow, that's quite a service record!)

Just a friendly heads-up that generally Project Member stickers go on the profiles of living people (Wiki Genealogists) who are participating in the project. You probably want these sticker templates instead, since he participated in each of the conflicts:

Thanks for all you do! -Jeff
