Wow is right! It is incredible the things they can do and the power behind it! I was looking through your blog again and just want to thank you for the resource that you are providing.
Keeping your son in my prayers, as he readies to deploy.

Indeed, Kathleen and Christopher's mom have spoken true words...what a beautiful sight to see. It's an amazing thing, this military we have...because each and every part of it is comprised of terrific men and women...and aren't we blessed to have them?
May God bless your son as he serves.

Neat picture! I separated from the Air Force in 2000. It was an amicable separation as I got to go free and they got their airplanes back. God bless your son and thank for his(and your) sacrifice!

Falcon's are fabulous, but my first love will always be the Super Tomcat (F-14) :-)
