My Guys!

I wish to take a few moments to clarify ‘who’s who’ in AirmanMom’s life!

My hubster is my husband, and my best friend! He served in the U.S, Navy many moons ago and is currently employed by the US Navy…still working on submarines as he was when he was on active duty.

My son John, truly is the inspiration for this blog. In February, 2007 he enlisted in the USAF for six years. Upon his enlistment, I decided to journal this chapter of my life. John is the youngest of my four children, forever my baby!

My oldest son, B enlisted in 1999. Our nation was enjoying a time of peace, so there was no need to worry when he (at the age of 17) told me of his choice. I respected his decision then; I respect his choice now that he has reenlisted in the USAF Reserves. B has a beautiful home in the Rockies, a good job and a college degree in Psychology! I am so very proud of my oldest son!

My SoldierSon, MudPuppy is an amazing young man I met in the blogosphere! I was fortunate enough to happen upon his blog, “Embrace the Suck” prior to his deployment to Afghanistan. Since his deployment, I have sent this soldier e-mails and packages. I have kept his status updated on my blog, since I know many of my readers have read his words, prior to him taking his blog private (for security reasons). Although, I did not carry Mudpuppy in my body, I carry him in my heart and soul.

I am so blessed to have these amazing guys in my life. They are worthy of constant prayers; for each of them are warriors, defenders of our nation.

May Almighty God bless these men who I love so dearly. I pray they be watched over and protected all the days of their lives.

A mighty good looking family you have there, AM. A submariner who never had to worry about getting wind or sunburned while on watch and three sons, two you carried and one you chose. I can see why you are so proud.

Alice said...

You have some pretty amazing men in your life. How lucky you are....and how lucky they are to have someone as fabulous as you love them!

Mary said...

AM,

How wonderful to meet your family. You must be very proud of all of them, including your adopted Mud Puppy. I enjoyed all of the photos, but the one of Mud Puppy with the dog is delightful.

I keep all of these men in my prayers.

Sorry it's been a while since I dropped by. Life seems to get in the way sometimes.

Blessings,
Mary

She links to Knottie's Niche and her husband, Gold Star Dad

Had you seen them?

AirmanMom said...

Kanani said...

Love it, love it, love it.
Okay Mom, I think you need a few soldier daughters as well! Where are those nurses?

I've left something for you to read --two posts over on mine.

jojo said...

What an amazing group! I can see why you are so proud mama;p Thank you and them for their service to our country. We are truly blessed...

AirmanMom said...

kanani... My soldier with Soldiers Angels is on his way home, perhaps my next soldier will be female!
I have visited your site and will encourage my readers to stop by...you have a lot to say and you way it well!

AirmanMom said...

jojo...truly, we are a blessed nation. so many sons and daughters who are brave soldiers!

joyce said...

I so enjoy "A Soldier's Mom" in Israel because while she has a soldier in the Army my son's age, hers is a very dangerous experience as Israel fights to exist and every child, man or woman, serves.

It is fun how when reading her, she had noted Knottie's husband blogging before I did. Knottie's Niche is someone I read every day, like I do yours! Thanks
