Chris recently informed me that I was falling behind in my updates. I advised him that he was falling behind in giving me things to update. LOL
Since getting him to send pictures is like pulling teeth, I set out to find my own photos and since I am proud to be Cav Mom, I am happy to give all Troopers there props. So here is to Spc. Alms, God Bless you Scout, Come home safe.

Thank you!, for your valiant son, among others and brave gals too,
who protect America from her enemies.

Here, we all sleep safer at night, because brave souls stand guard over our liberties abroad.

Kindest regards,

A special thank you once again to your son! A very special thank you to you, Mom...without your constant love and support he could not do what he does, he would not be who he is!!!!

Yep, getting them to send piks is quite a job sometimes. Been there done that. If you are like we were you will get a bunch at one time then none until you beg for some more. I think they think, they are just doing their job and it's no big deal to them. It sure is to the parents.

Love your artistic blog background. Wish I was that talented.

ABNPOPPA to Cav Mom.

Bless you and yours
