A Shout Out

This post will stay on top for several days, so cruise on down yonder for updates.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Big 'D' - a good friend of mine in the Air Force - is on his way to Afghanistan today.

Big apology 'D', I thought you were leaving next Wednesday and was going to give you a verbal holler before you took off. Hopefully, this is second best, since I know you pop in here now and then.

Anyway, my best wishes to you and your family (wife and son) while you're away.


Note: If you happen to see a pale looking guy around 6'6" tall, sporting a skunk-striped beard with a bedsheet wrapped around his head and walking with a cane, send him to Allah for me, will you? And the more pieces Allah has to gather up and puzzle back together, the better.

I hope your friend is aware of all the support groups like Any Soldier, Books for Soldiers and others. Their is a phone service called Skype.com that seems reasonable. And there are sites for making daddy dolls for little ones at home--I have it written down but can't find it right now. I hope if your readers are not supporters, they will become care pkg senders, etc!
Tell 'D' his service is appreciated and keep us updated.

Well...let me just say that, Big D, I hope you have a successful tour of duty, and kick the bad guys' asses from here to Allahville.

I extend my whole-hearted gratitude to you, Big D.

Your friend and his family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

Whether or not we agree with our government's policy regarding this war, we must support the heroic men and women who are defending our freedom over there. We owe them far more than we can ever repay.

Thanks all of you. I'll make sure he gets the word.

Many thanks and warm wishes to you, "D". Come home soon and safe!

I'm usually a lurker, but for this.... Best wishes "D" and thank you.

Hi Linda....you were probably referring to flatdaddies (or daddy).com. I believe they will provide one free of charge to the military spouse.

sk,
Glad you showed your face for this one. ;)
