A year ago today,

Red and I reunited after his year long deployment. Tears still come to my eyes when I think about it, it was our happiest day. I say that with gratefulness. Grateful that we were given more years together and grateful for the ultimate sacrifice of so many men and women.
This past weekend, five more soldiers were killed from 10th Mountain Division of Ft. Drum. Another reminder that so many do not get to experience the joy that we did last year. I think it's difficult to understand the sense of community of a military base unless you've experienced it first hand. These are neighbors, gym buddies, co-workers, and friends. My heart goes out to these families, please keep them in your prayers.
