began & want to thank you AGAIN for your service and congratulate you
for becoming the much needed hub for SO MANY recon sites/groups. My partner

help him with ... but in less than a minute I could find the vehicle info/specs he needed."

information you gave me. It is exactly what I needed to complete my reconstruction

in the mail. Because I am no longer working in an AR capacity, I am letting
all of my memberships in AR organizations expire. I have enjoyed the information

AR field in the future, the ARC Network will be one of the first organizations
to which I will reapply. Thanks."

comments... I am impressed!"
