Memorial Day

With this being a special day, I am so happy to be able to share a special post!
Stoney, my brother-in-law, has been serving in Afghanistan for the past year.  He and his wife, Ali, have been married almost 4 years, but have lived together less than half of that time.  This is his second deployment since they were married.  He graduated from West Point in 2004 and is a Captain.  He has been asked to return to West Point and be an English Professor.  Stoney can write better than anyone I know, so this puny post is nothing compared to some of his works, but I just had to share the wonderful news!
We are so thrilled........
Stoney is home!!!!!!!
I hope to post some pictures of his arrival soon.
Thanks to so many of you, I know you have been praying with us during this difficult deployment.
Please remember those who have not returned home and those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and never return home.
Also, think about this.  Only two people ever gave their lives for us.  The American soldier gives his for our freedom, and Christ gave his life for our salvation!
