Linda thanks for the picture of the Master Chief's service dress blues!!


I had the pleasure of meeting the Master Chief numerous times throughout the years. First time was waiting in line at the DMV. I was always struck by how quiet and unassuming he was. He seemed genuine to me and seemed to be very uncomfortable with the "Survivor" fame.


Crossed paths with the Master Chief a few times as a Firefighter. His house was in our first due area and he would always take time to say hello to the guys. He even came by the firehouse to say hello a couple of times.


Sad to see him go, but I know he has been reunited with his bride now.
