I just wanted you to know that the flag that you brought me from Iraq after your first deployment was hoisted to the top of our flagpole on Memorial Day then lowered to half staff til noon when it again was raised to the top. I have decided that this flag will only be flown three days a year. It will fly on Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Sept.11th. The rest of the time it will have a place of honor in a flag case, on top of the bookshelf and will be seen by all who enter our front door.

Stay safe, and like before, Charlie Mike.

Micah - thinking of you today...and Beth and the boys, and remembering too many "significant events and dates celebrated while too far away from family." Today is Memorial Day - and, this year it's also the anniversary of my Ordination as a Pastor. And, although I was a Marine longer than I have been clergy, both of our vocations, on this day, call us to "remember" those who've gone before us.

Hugs from about 10,500 feet up in the Colorado Rockies...to you across the planet, and to Beth and the boys 'just down the street.' Again, come home safely...we all love you very much,

Jobie,Cheryl, Rachel and the Brown Dogs
