Our grandson riding on our son’s shoulders

Our son is leaving tomorrow for his training for his deployment to Iraq. I read the following letter from a mom to her son when he deployed to Iraq and I totally agree.

I know that our country has a mission in Iraq; I know that the Army and your unit also have their missions… Just don’t confuse those missions with YOUR principle mission – which is to come home safe to us. Your job is to do whatever it takes to accomplish YOUR mission. If it’s you or them — make it them.
