Special thanks to my wife Joni for all her support, help, photos (all photos thanks to Joni), and countless hours spent helping The Greek Warriors become a reality. Special thanks to my sister-in-law Veronica, who has been just as supportive. My thanks to you Veronica for all your help! . And thanks to you too Justine, our Greek warrior princess! All our love
Additional Note of Thanks
George and Dave
I recently saw a movie and one of the characters in the movie stated: "Where would we be without our wives”. I know that I am in a better place because of mine. Joni has been a help and a support for me and The Greek Warriors, and this website and group would not be as good without her support and help. Our home is full of Greek shields, and the garage is full of boxes of armor. The house has tools to make this stuff all over the place. I drag her around to our events, and most of the pictures in this website were taken by Joni. She is very much a part of this group and I could not do what I do without her. Thank you Joni for being the best in a wife that any man could ask for, and for being a support in what has become a passion for me. But you are my greatest passion.
Your Greek Warrior Husband
