    Better sleep coming tonite

    For the first time in almost 6 years, I can go to sleep without having to worry about getting "the call" from the military. When you have a soldier in a combat zone, every night before hitting the sheets, you think, "Will I get the call tonite?". Between my son and son in law, it has been almost 6 years since I haven't had a son in Iraq. I got the call 2 years ago when my son found an IED with his Stryker. Some hospital time, but that was all. My son in law finally came home this morning from a 15 month tour over there.

    Seemed like one or the other was there all the time. Both have done 2 tours. In march, Mike will get his block leave and be here for a while and David is 1 hour away, recruiting. Gonna get both of them here some weekend and take my 2 warriors to the range or lake or something. I am just glad it is over, for now.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Congrats to you, good to hear. My younger brother is currently in his MOS school, and I'm in Iraq, I don't want to think about the stress my parents have from that.

    Thank them for my wife and I for their service and sacrifice. I would imagine they got quite a bit of range time so if it is nice and warm when you all are together they may enjoy fishing more. Something that is relaxing without the loud sounds of gunfire.
