    My son is on leave for two weeks from Iraq, we went fishing last night at morine veiw state park ( Dawson Lake), he had a couple of pole benders on but they rap him up in some stumps and they got off. We caught a few small channels but we threw them back, we were using cut bait. There was only one boat on the lake and it looked as though we were the only ones out fishing from the bank. It was a peacefull night and we had a good talk after not seeing each other for seven months, hopefully he will be back in October for good.
    God Bless all our men and women in the Middle East

    From sombody who has been in Iraq on 2 deployments I know how yall feel, its a great feeling to come home and spend time with your family. when it comes time to head back, Just hang in there, tell him to be safe and that he has plenty of folks looking out for him and thinking about him
