Out with the OLD in with the New

Well the weekend that I have to report is always fun. I love it so much that my face hurts. I go the whole month without shaving and i feels so right but the time comes when you have to put that razor to the test and cut into the FACE FORREST. Boston love the idea that I wear the uniform and always wants to wear the Combat Boots. He says, Daddy I want to put my bootz onz. I don't think that I want him to ever be in the service in any branch. I know that the time is coming when I will have to make that decision to get out. It will be hard even though I have said that It would be better for me to be as far away from this thing as I can but it is hard to leave my brothers and the Uniform that I wear with pride even though I talk trash on it often. I only have 7 months left at this time and I know that there is a possibility that the 2010 could bring some more heartache and a deployment but we will approach that when it comes. I don't want to go on another Overseas deployment. I have been thinking for some time now about the job that I will do and there are so many options and not many doors open for the decision making process. I will have to have some magic come out of my fingers (or some other part of my body) by December so my wife can stop working full time. I do love her for that. I know that the lord will help me to see the pathway to follow so we will rely on that.
I hope the day never comes when I have to see one or both of my boys off to a war. I can't imagine that side of the fence. I had the job in my head and the thought of safety for most of it. I know that one day will come that we will all have to make the choice to defend our homes and families and when that day come you can bet the farm that I will suit up again no matter what my age and Kick some ASS. It will not be a easy choice to make because it is a dangerous time to be on the IRR. SO it is either hide for to years like a Yellow Belly(lack of a curse word) or stay in a hope that I don't have to go in 2010.................................well I don't hide so we will see. Some have the right to criticize the Soldiers for what they do but all the Rights that you have are from God and protected by a Solider.

Let me be the first to say that you should read my blog on better and best decisions and that should really help you. Oh and by the yeah isn't it great to be rad?

First of all, can I tell you how cool it is that you BOTH actually post....wish I could get Collin to. Second, I agree I hope you don't get sent back out and I hope the day never comes when Boston and Tayden get sent off either. I guess that is one good thing about having little girls! We love you guys! Stick to shootin' guys on Halo 3 for now!

Jared you are my hero and I hope you never get sent out again too. I heard the story where you were in some class at Boise State and some people were talking trash about the war and you stood up and told them where to go. I wish I could of been there!
And I also think its cool that you post on your blog too.
