About 5 minutes ago I just got a call from my son and he is on his way home from Afghanistan, Helmund, Khandahar area, one of the hot spots. My wife spoke to him. I had sent him an email earlier today which he obviously had not received as he had forgotten that today was his birthday. Many prayers and worries have just been lifted. This is the end of his 3rd tour since joining in 2004, 2 in Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan. Lord Willing he will be getting out.
