    My youngest son Jackson is off to Afganistan for 9 months or so after 3 months of training I am very proud not very happy. Well he volunteered I am counting days off now, my sister inlaw picked him up NJ Army base at last day here we drove 5 hours spent day with him two sets of grandparents came my parents almost 90 years old could not make trip. Well he is NAVY tHey had him do three months Army train to get ready going to a safe zone so they say does not feel that way to me. Dave

    He must be quite a young man, and you have my deepest respect as a family.

    I wish your son all the best, you must be proud of him. My son spent 7 months in Afghanistan a couple of years back, he is a Major in the Canadian Air Force and his time was spent on the sharp end as a FAC ( forward air controller )
