Okay. Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Mr. Fuchko, as you've said, you've heard “thanks for your service” enough, so I won't bother again because, as you've said, there's limited utility to hearing that at this point.
I will say, as someone who is now a member of government, that I am sorry. I am sorry that this has been happening. One of the reasons I am on this committee—I requested to be on this committee—is that at the doorstep I met a lot of veterans who had stories, not nearly as horrendous as the stories I'm hearing on this committee.
