Hallelujah! Son returns from 2nd Iraq tour...

Today was one of the great days of our lives - our younger son, a US Marine Corporal, returned safely from his second tour in Iraq. For the last six months he has been in Al-Qa'im, along the Syrian border.

My wife and I flew down to California to meet him at his base in the desert here.

Although this time things were a little more bearable due to more frequent e-mail and phone calls, it is still great to have him back on US soil! We're a very grateful family.
