A Marine Goes to War as a Soldier

It would take a book--and far more personal revelations than I care to make--to explain what a dear friend Sgt. B is, and the impact of that friendship.

And now he's heading off to war. It's what he has wanted and what he has worked very hard for, even before he signed up two years ago. So I'm proud of him, happy for him, and...

That's the thing about grown ups, we manage to hold conflicting feelings and use our minds to choose which ones we will feed and build on. And every day is looking better over there.

So... smiles, hugs and cheers for Sgt. B! We've proudly got your back.
