After 2 tours in Iraq..My oldest son is back in the states. He should be home in June for a 3 week visit and then back then his plans are to re-up. I have got more gray hairs in the last 2 years than ever.
I'm happy for you. It's certanly a great feeling to have them back.
My son did one tour and expects to go back in a few more months for his second trip. He'll be near his re-enlistment date 6 months into the tour and figures to be extended... he states he'll re-enlist into the Navy s soon as he finished his Army hitch.
Your son and those like him are an inspiration to all of us and prove that the generalization that the kids of today don't care about their country is false. God bless him and men and women who serve with him.
Thanks a bunch guys. Just passed your word on to him today. He called from Camp Pen. and first thing he asked is "Hey Dad..What do you think of the 25 WSSM. I about died. He's looking forward to a shopping spre here for some long guns. Hey Chris Matthews...Might have another customer for ya [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
