Good news

Infantry Dad's son, SPC Matt Rider, arrived at Ft. Lewis, Washington in the wee hours Saturday. His Stryker battalion had been in Iraq for 15 months.

His dad and I have become Internet friends as we watched and waited for sons to come home.

Boots on the ground.

The happiest words for parents.

Thanks Dad.
Now we wait for block leave.
We spent a great day in Tacoma.
I forgot to charge the battery for the camera, and it decided to go south just when we were getting ready to take some family shots.
We will own a spare battery soon.
