Great job and pass our congrats for his birthday!
Enjoy him while he's there! They grow up, put on uniforms and are sometimes thousands of mile away (although, both of mine grew up with a Dad that was often on a different continent).
I missed my son's 12th birthday - my family was is Germany, I was in Desert Storm.
Scott thanks for your service!
I try and spend as much time and do as many creative things with my boys that I can. I lost my best friend, my dad when I was fourteen. Everything I learned about the outdoors, wood working, boating, fishing, hiking, back packing he taught me and I try and pass that knowledge onto my sons. Wish I'd been interested in welding, he was a Master welder and Journeyman electrician.
I should not forget to mention he was a Vietnam Vet too. We proudly fly our flag EVERYDAY for our troops!
