    Said farewell till next time today to my life long best friend John
    Who is a Master Sergeant in the Us Army heading to his second tour of Iraq.
    First tour got him a head wound from a grenade.
    We spent the day together with our wives and my daughter.
    I hope to see him in a year, almost lost him last time around, was hard to say goodbye.
    If I was ever in trouble, John was involved growing up…lol We have been friend as long as I can remember. I will miss him.

    Thanks Mags,,, it was one of the hardest things I have done in my life, was to say good bye and not know if it was forever, He’s like a brother to me.
    We have been through it all together.
    I had to sit through his will and last wishes today, man……….. that wasn’t fun.

    I know that must have been tough. I will send prayers his way, and hope that he returns safely. It looks like y'all had a really good time before he left for his tour, what a great send off. Thanks for the pics too.

    Quig, I know how ya feel. One of my best friends just left for Afghanistan for a year. It was hard to say goodbye and see him leave. All I could say was that I'll see ya when you get back, what else do you say to somebody that is going to a combat zone, especially if ya never done the same yourself.

    Prayers sent for your buddy and a safe return home.

    takes real strength to knowingly get on the airplane going into a combat zone when folks at home are gonna wakeup tomorrow throw a fishing rod in the truck and go fishing while you're getting bedded down in your new digs and drawing epuipment.because somebody you never met is po'd enough at you. to try to injure and kill you.yet Life simply rolls on at home while it is put on hold in the sh**..ite

    Glad you get your friend/brother back in one piece. War is such a stupid incomphrehensible concept.[flag]
