    Just to letting my brothers know that my 15 day leave has ended and I am back in Baghdad. Thanks too everyone that send me emails checking up on me. My boys are doing great and the wife is doing one hell of a job. My oldest and I went fishing twice and did a lot of catching up. He was really upset when I got back on the plane but he is doing better once grandpa put a rod in his hand and said "lets go fishing and talk about it."

    Sorry I havent been on the board as much as I should have been but I really wanted to focus on my family while at home.

    I tried some of the Texas Select Seasoning I won on the giveaway. WOW that stuff is hot but darn good. Went down well with some ice cold beer!
    It is some great stuff and highly recommend it!

    I missed chatting with everyone and am sad to see the passing of a member.
    I hope everyone is in good health and remains that way. Anyway...great to be back and look forward to reading your posts.

    Don't worry about not posting much. I know that family is very important especialy when you only have a few days with them before you're called back. I for one want to thank you for your service to this great country.


    Wishing you and your unit well and praying for a safe and speedy return home.

    Thank you for your service, inspiration, and friendship.
    You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

    After 23 years in the Army, I can remember the hardest thing for me to do is to leave my family. I had to leave them many many times during my tour.
