As a mother, I couldn't be prouder of my youngest son. He's been notified that he is on the US Army's E-7 Promotion List for this year. He joined the Army in the Spring of 1998, so this is his 10th year. Achieving this rank in that amount of time is amazing.

My friend Fran is going to see her son return from Iraq this week and I remember the goosebumps I had when Jeff's plane landed and they started filing down those steps.
And then they were marching toward the hanger we had been waiting in for their arrival.
And then to see his photo in the newspaper was a mothers proudest moment.
Fran, my heart is with you this week - ENJOY THE TIME WITH YOUR SON!
