Last night his dad text'd me stating that Billy Jr. has just received the Bronze Star.
We are so very proud of Billy Jr. and rejoice with his family. He will be rotated home in the Spring.
Until then, LORD, keep him and his comrades-in-arms safe. Bring them all home to their families.
On a personal note, our daughter has finally reached her assigned post, COP Caran. I believe it is about 50 miles from Kandahar. It is a small Contingency Operation Post assigned with a unit from the 4th Infantry Division. She goes out on convoys assigned as a gunner in a MRAP. But this one is different; unlike the soldier who was wounded in the September post, her top mount fifty cal is equipped with a camera and electric drive. She operates it like a video game. I like that very much.
