My nephew just got back to the States from Afghanistan and family members are on their way to see him. No, unfortunately he’s not back for good, instead it’s a two week hiatus that is much needed. He had a close call a few months back when the tank he was riding in was destroyed. He’s a military man, like his father was (who served in Vietnam and is now buried in Arlington). After this year, and 20 years of service in two wars…..yes he was also sent to the Gulf War, Doug can retire!
(Maya Muses: We’re all praying for his safe return at the end of the year, but for now, it’s good to have him home!
