I met your son in Iraq. His last name caught my eye and I was kidding him about not being in the navy. I'm with the Seal Teams and he just smiled and chatted a while. I'm sorry to hear he passed but please know all are proud of him and your sacrafice to keep Uncle Sam Safe. Millions have paid the ultimate price for ol' glory. Its high and expensive but no matter what you hear....Its well worth it. Take solice that you will be with him one day and laughing about all the tears.
