  Putting the exact thoughts into words is difficlut for me.  I will say this.  I will 
do my best to encourage Acknowledgement on a local Fighter practice level.  This is the 
sort of this the HRH Logan does at each and every fighter practice.  I don't do it as

   I have seen new fighteres become discouraged.  This is what botheres me the most.  We 
need as many fighters as we can get.  We need as many people as we can get for that 
  Your Grace, thanks for your words of wisdom.
