I plan to relax, stay home as much as possible, maybe do a little griilin'....just plan to enjoy some peace and quiet, the product of a great, free, and wonderful country thanks to those who fought and are fighting to keep it that way!
Tomorrow morning, my U.S. Army 1956 Chevy Suburban Carryall will be the lead vehicle in the Memorial Day Parade. My way of honoring our Nations Military Veterans and active duty soldiers. Take a few minutes tomorrow and think of our brave soldiers all over the world. My son-in-law is stationed in Baghdad. Say a prayer for all of them.
"Say a prayer for all of them".....I agree completely.A special "Thanks" to your son-in-law and any other members who have family away protecting our great nation.My son was stationed overseas when he was in the army but it was before our current conflict.I remember how uneasy I was the entire time he was on foreign soil.....anything can happen at any time......I can only imagine it's much worse knowing he's directly in harms way.
1 month after he went to camp Charley, my daughter found out she was going to have a baby, our first Grandchild. Now is worried that he won't come back to see it his child born. He is moving to an even worse camp this week... Several mortar attacks every day....
I'll pass it on to him and his unit. They appreciate all the positive thoughts they can get. He drives an M88 (very slow and armoured) and has to go to places that have IED's all day long. Some of those bombs can pick an M88 up and flip it upside down. He also pulls out all the Hummvees that have been blown up so he see's a lot that I am sure will scar him for life. He also pulls guard duty every week at the front gate to the base camp. Pretty much a target for the low-lifes over there. We are afraid to answer the phone because we don't want to hear bad news. Prayers are great. Thanks.
