It's the evening of 1 June 2009. I just got back from Fort Dix, NJ where I (and a few hundred other families) greeted home our American heroes. My "boy" (a 6'3 man with combat experience in a war zone) is home. For 230+ years - since the original "America the Brave" - we are free because of young men and women like him. To all veterans - Cadets as well as non Cadets - THANK YOU and God Bless you for the freedoms we all are so blessed to have!
My older son, John Louis, should be coming home from Baghdad in early June. It's been a long year! His little brother Alex misses him a lot. So do I!
