Gloria, hooray, he's home safe!! Please thank you son for his service and let him know that this old leftie pacifist supports the troops 100%. It's his superiors I have problems with. Anyone who dons the uniform gets the respect of more old hippies than you'll know.Peace, in our time, Amy (and a silly poem)http://sharplittlepencil.wordpress.com/2011/04/08/you-said-it/
Glad he's home--Let me second sharp little pencil's thoughtsMy poem is at http://word-painting.blogspot.com
Celebrating with you...and joining Amy and Marginalia with my gratitude for his service.
Thank you all!! This was his third tour and each one has been for a year....and each one I've found myself more anxious. It is definitely a time for celebration having him home. He and his wife have been apart too much! I will pass your words along to him, and thank you again!!!
Lovely poem, wonderful news! Mad Kane
That is a wonderful way to celebrate! I'm happy for you, Gloria! Oh, how wonderful it is to know that family is a blessing and a gift! :) We all need that reminder every now and then.Also, thank you so much for visiting my Livejournal and for taking the time to read my poem at http://alotus-poetry.livejournal.comBlessings to you, your son, and your family! :)
Gloria, so glad he is home. I have a son-in-law who was in Iraq three times. He has six more years, as career army. I pray he won't be sent to another war zone, but that is unlikely.
