“This is ex­tremely un­ex­pected for me and I’m very hum­bled,” posted Dahl. “I’m very grate­ful and I ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery sin­gle per­son who has taken a few sec­onds of their life to check it out. To those who left words of en­cour­age­ment, I can’t say thank you enough. I never dreamed this is the way this would un­fold. To the mil­i­tary per­son­nel, past and present from all over this globe, who have con­tacted me, it is you es­pe­cially that I carry this on for.”
