Fare thee well, my One Son
Remember the final days of summer when you wish you never had to go back to school? Remember the day that finally came when surgery was scheduled and you wish you would never wake up? Remember those far-away vacations that you didn't want to return home from? Remember those perfect weekends that you never wanted the Sunday sun to set? Today was one of those days for me. My son is on a bus to Kuwait, via Baltimore and Germany. His wife, Rachel remained home in Richmond, Virginia to keep the home fires burning. He will serve his second tour of duty in Iraq for one year as a Scuba Diver in the Army. Pray. Wish. Hope. Please be mindful of each and every single one of our soldiers deployed, that they will return home safely to their friends and families. And when you see a flag like this , it represents a family member serving active duty.
