Hi Chuck, everyone is doing fine. Garrett is still in Pensacola as a Rescue Swimmer instructor, while Valerie is a 1st Lt. in the Marines back from Afghanistan in October, now getting ready for a new deployment shortly. She is really loving her role, and truly feels that she was born to do this! I hope your two are doing well as well! Thanks for reaching out. All the best!
Chuck, LOL! I assure you I never disappeared, just got stuck working behind the scenes for far too long. But, glad you remember the good old days when I had tons of free time on here, man I miss those days... I hope you and the family are doing well.
My son is an AM, and enjoys what he is doing. We talk fairly often (phone or text) when he's not on duty. I know it is a little tougher when they are away. He took in a soccer game last night and got to enjoy Seattle a little. Enjoyed your pictures. Family is important to us as well.
Chuck, I am also from Pennsylvania. Didn't do or say much until my son arrived and settled. He seems to be adjusting and learning the ropes.I see you have two in. My youngest (daughter) has considered it, but has health issues that have kept her from taking the plunge. It has been good for Cody.
