I'm also thinking about Pup #2. We shipped him off last Friday to his first duty station. He's in Hawaii, which might as well be another country compared to Maryland. Remember how happy I was when my WC brother and WC sister moved closer?? Yeah... Hawaii. That's like 5 hours earlier than we are. He's going to sleep when I'm getting up. It's crazy to be so out of sync with him. He'll deploy in June, although there's still some talk about whether it will be Iraq or Afghanistan. I guess I should be thankful he's safe and sound in Hawaii.... all 4902 miles away from me.
Countrymouse and I are very proud of the Pup. Wanting to serve your country is always an admirable thing, but choosing to do so during wartime is especially so. We keep him in our prayers and also pray for the country and all our leaders. It would be awesome for our current administration to really back the war so we could get things accomplished. I'm pretty sure Pup #2 has more courage and conviction than a lot of those guys in DC.
Oh. Why is the sky blue? Because God loves the Infantry.
