One of my best friends is headed off for pre-deployment training, and ultimately Afghanistan, tomorrow. We had lunch today and just enjoyed talking about everything we've been up to. He has a wife and a young daughter that I know will miss him terribly this year. He is in Special Operations work so his job can be high risk. If y'all don't mind, please keep them all in your prayers.

Had the server take a pic of us before we left, because I always regret not having more pics of my friends.

"Be careful, and if you can't be careful, be deadly."

Advice given to me a couple of decades earlier that I've since shared with several young friends going in harm's way. Most already knew it, but in all instances, it served them well. I'll guess your friend is one of those who already knows it. I wish him well. The flag and yellow ribbon in my avatar are for him and all those like him, 'til they all come home.

Standing the watch. Good advice given and prayers sent up. God bless ALL of our Americans that say I will stand the watch. I will be the line, I will be the hand of compassion and free giving of help, BUT I am also the hand of death, to all those that chose to harm my country, family, way of life or freedom of people. It is amazing the levels that our military people will find themselves in these days. God bless your friend, his family and I as a veteran am happy he chose to stand the watch.

Thanks for all the prayers and comments, folks. I can tell you this guy bleeds red, white, and blue and is a Marine through and through. He is tough as steel, but is one of the nicest, laid back, all around good dudes I've ever had the privilege of knowing. I'll miss him alot this year.
