We sleep safe in our beds at because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

Update

As you may or may not have noticed I haven't posted the picture of my Warrior in Haiti through no fault of his.  Rather through the ineptness of his computer ignorant father.  It was, and still is a cool pik.  He is being the good soldier standing in front of a barber shop with his cool shades.  He is dressed in full battle rattle (I think).  It's hard to tell when you strap on 100+ pounds of gear on a 150+ pound frame.  He is dressed in the ARMY'S finest camo ACU's, BDU's, or what ever they are called today.   But enough about him, how about me? 

I am the  parent of this rough and rugged Warrior and damn proud of him and his unit.  The short story on my previous post doesn't do justice to the good these brave young men and women do.  In war times or in times of natural disaster they are truly the best at what they do.  Giving, caring, protecting and saving the citizens of the greatest country in the world or some other deserving country.

I just received a text from my Warrior who said they had just made a little PT jog through the streets in the neighborhood. Since my weather bug shows a current temp of 70 degrees and rain in San Juan he seemed in good spirits.  San Juan, of the Dominican Republic, is the closest weather station I can locate.  Perhaps it is not raining where he is at.  Then again, maybe it is and he likes running in the rain.  At 70 degrees it can't be that bad.  He actually is lucky.  I spent my afternoon shoveling  snow, (more piks I can't seem to get downloaded).  Last call was 10 to 12 inches.  Geesh, I wish he was home!!

Other than that not much going on from what I hear.  Just another fun day in an exotic location sponsored by the US ARMY, courtesy of the American taxpayer, you and me.  Boy I hope he takes some pictures.  I would like to have something for my money!   LOL
