Hey uncle! Just checking up on you and letting you know I'm thinking of you often. Thank you for your sacrifice which I am reminded of with each deployment and TDY I take. It reminds me to be strong, like you.

Will keep thinking of you,

Hi Dad. I know that you are looking down on me and I hope that you are proud of what I am doing. Mom is doing great also. We will all be together one day.

Love, your son,
