  • Guess Whose Coming to Dinner?

    My oldest son is currently stationed in Afghanistan. Last week his Division Headquarters contacted him to tell him he needed to travel because someone had requested his company for dinner at an alternate location in Afghanistan. When he showed up for dinner he was dining with the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. There were 45 other people in the group but he was still able to get some one on one with him.

          Jaysen sent Brenda a photo of him presenting the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee with a set of spurs and a plaque from his unit, the 6th Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment.

                that would make me the adopted son in law

                  You're absolutely right. We also have two adopted daughter:

                  Joey - Executive Director of a home to help young women

                  Sydney - Stay-at-home mum living in Australia and attending nursing school

                  We are equally proud of all of them.

                    A little follow up. Brenda spent the last 12-days with Jana, Larry and the girls on vacation. They started out in NYC then Philadelphia and finished up by meeting Matea's school as they deplaned in DC. The trip was planned around Matea's schools field trip to Washington DC.

                    The Congressman Jaysen had dinner with in Afghanistan is also the Congressman of our District and a long time friend. Brenda was able to arrange a group photo with the kids and the Congressman. What top the trip off though was Brenda had a 1-hour meet and greet with the Congressman in his office. To her surprise, the picture in post 5 above along with the spurs and plaque were prominently displayed on the Congressman's wall.
