I'm sure you're glad he's home. Is he happy, too? Thank him for his service. That's the good thing now (and hopefully it will continue for awhile) - that is, that many Americans will thank servicemen/women for their service and really appreciate what they are doing for us. Just curious, I served with a First Cav unit: 1/9 (First of the Ninth) when it was a helicopter reconnaissance squadron. Now it's a ground cav unit. What unit did your son serve with?
