Eight and a half years ago, Mr. Mac and I said farewell to our eldest son as he enlisted in the United States Army. A journey that has matured and sharpened a young man and helped him see just how fortunate he is to live in the land of the free. Today, I proudly can say that his tour of duty as a tank crewman is officially over. He will be making his way home during the next week with a few stops along the way to visit his grandparents and a goodbye dinner with relatives. Thank you son for your service and for all of the other young men and women that selflessly give years of service (even life) to their country.
This is the BEST birthday gift this mom could ask for!
