If this doesn't put a catch in your throat

Then I don't know what to say...

I'm tearing up just listening to the soundtrack again.

I don't know if everyone knows, but my stepson, The Cool One is serving with the 82nd Airborne in Afghanistan.

Now I don't always get along with him, but I gotta tell you when he showed up at the house last week for a 21 day leave in his cammies, I don't think I've ever been more glad to see him. Or more proud of him than I was (am) at that moment.

His Momma was sooooooooooooo glad to see him, it took my breath away to see the two of them together.

He is a tall fine, strapping young man. A credit to his Mom, The state of Texas, His country, and the US Army. There really isn't a finer thing a young person can do...But you can't tell him I said so...

And I oppose Bush's war in Iraq. Pretty much a bleeding heart liberal these days, but I didn't used to be...

But the stuff these fine young kids are doing in Afghanistan, really can speak to the greatness of our country's young people. You should see the pictures of these kids with the young children in the countryside over there...

If you get a chance, introduce yourself,  listen to their stories. And shake their hands and tell them...Thanks.

Anyway the slide show is greatness personified. And no, he ain't in any of these. But still...
