Son is in the "Ice box"

Recommended Posts

My oldest hoped he would be retiring from Ft. Bragg(N.C.)and has a nice home there. Instead the army decided to ship him to Alaska for his next tour-really ticks lots of folks off but that is what the GI stands for. He deploys soon from there to the sandy areas for the third time. He made his 23 rd jump last week. Our 2ond son is there with him and they are going bear hunting Columbus Day (Monday 10). They both are avid sportsmen and have been catching Salmon regularly. One large one snatched the reel out of the rod. LOL, one held the rod and the other reeled it in. They said the fillets were 4" thick.

God speed for your son on his new adventure. I know all about the plans of a G.I. getting changed. My D-ex was in Air Force for 4 years. I was with him every step of the way except for basic training. "Our" tour of duty in Ohio turned out to be a year in Japan and then a year in China (Taiwan). It was a hardship at the time but now I wouldn't trade the experience and memories for anything!

Please thank your sons for what they are doing. Our son was in the Air Force for just over 7 years and then in the Army National Gaurds for another 13 -14 years. Time goes so fast, I'm not sure right now just how long he was in. He also served in Iraq for a while. I have a nephew who has been there 3 or 4 times now.

 

No one understands what people go through unless they have had loved ones in the service. :)

 

Sounds like they are great at fishing. :) Should put pictures on here. :)

 

Again, please thank them for us. :)
