Something About My Son

Recommended Posts

A few months ago my son was sent to Injun country with his unit as a last minute replacement. I'm happy to say that he's home with his wife and kid. The circumstances are a mixture of disappointment and relief. His disappointment that he injured his knee so badly before operations began that he was flown home to have surgery, and my relief that he's home safe. Add in a little guilt for me that he's safe and the other kids are still in harms way. With luck he'll be up and about and able to at least finish this hitch in the Marines.

 

Thanks for everyone keeping him and his buds in their prayers. I still pray for his friends, though I might never meet them, it's the least an old warrior should do.

Things happen for a reason. A friend of mine was supposed to deploy to Saudi back in the 90s. Well his instructor slot came through so a replacement sent. That replacement later died in the Khobar Towers bombing. You just never know.

 

Glad he is home safe.
