Grandson going to Afghanistan
I hugged my adopted (step) grandson good-bye tonight. After doing 2 tours of duty in Iraq, and then working for the government there, he's now headed for Afghanistan as a government contractor, teaching the soldiers how to use the newest modern weapons...for big bucks.
I just pray he comes home safe. He says Afghanistan is better than Iraq...but that doesn't mean it's that great.
As a kid, he got in trouble in high school, but everyone (including me) thought he was a good kid, so they sent him to the Army instead of prison. Evidently, it was just what he needed, as he has turned into a fine young man. We are so proud of him.
Please join me in praying for his safety.
We get by with a little help from our friends
