Josh's Going Away Party

Yesterday we went to a going away party for a 2nd cousin, Josh. He is in the National Guard and is heading out to Afghanistan February 1st. He will be over there for a little under a year. That is what he at least has been told right now. I will be praying for his safety. It's very scary but I have to say he doesn't seem scared at all. He is very excited about going and serving his country. The picture I have here on this post is of Josh and his family. His mom seems to be doing okay too. Josh is her baby and they are close. I'm sure she is really going to miss him.

Good luck Josh.

It's never easy sending them off. I can remember taking my son to the airport when he was getting ready to deploy to Iraq. It is very scary but it helps to know that they have been trained well. Best wishes to Josh and prayers for his safe return
