This is the first that I haven't had all of my sons at least within relatively close proximity to home, and I'm having a little trouble with that.
Fortunately, as of yesterday, I know that he is relatively safe.
I got a phone call that lasted about two minutes before the connection got so terrible we couldn't understand what each other was saying.
Today my thoughts turn to two young men who's parents aren't as fortunate as us.
Specialist Alex Jimenez of Lawrence Massachusetts, and PFC Byron Fouty of Waterford Michigan.
That's Alex on the left, and Byron center.

I hope that everyone who reads this will say a prayer for these two soldiers, that they will be found safe and returned home to their loved ones, soon.
You can read more about them here.

That's me to the left, second son Jeremy, his girlfriend Sarah, and my boss Frank.
I know, my boss is the same age as my oldest son!!
I couldn't ask for a better boss.
Hope he doesn't stumble onto this. He might get a big head!!
