I got what I wanted for Christmas!


After a year of serving in Iraq, our son is home safe!

Our son, Caleb, joined the Army when he was just 17 years old. He was the youngest to graduate in his Basic Training Unit at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. From there he trained for Cannon Crew Member at Ft. Sill, OK and is stationed at Ft. Hood, TX.

Shortly after his AIT training, he learned he would be going to Iraq. Last Christmas he was not able to be with us as he was preparing for his journey. I did get to travel to Ft. Hood to visit him.

He was in Iraq from January 2009 through December 2009 with a short leave in August.

While in Iraq Caleb earned a Action Combat Badge.

Combat Action Badge.<span class=
Combat Action Badge is awarded to soldiers who is personally present and actively engaging or being engaged by the enemy, and performing satisfactorily.

It's so good to to hear his music and just know he's around. Even seeing the toilet seat up is kinda fun (for now).

Also, visits with our daughter is nice. We see her now and then and it's always fun. It's nice to have both the kids home :).

Caleb has leave for a couple of weeks, then will return to Ft. Hood.

I'm taking the rest of this week off my blog (gonna spend more time with my kids) .....see you in 2010.
