We will be leaving Mobile going to Cozumel and Calica for 5 days, we will be celebrating our 28th Anniversary. Also tomorrow my oldest and I will participate in the Veteran's Day celebration in our town. I will be representing the Desert Storm vets and my oldest the Iraq Freedom vets. I do not know if I told you all to know what I received from my oldest. , As we picked him up at the airport, where he had just returned home from a tour in Iraq, he presented me with his own Iraq Freedom medal. I do not know if I had tears of joy of his safe return or him presenting me his very own medal. He told me that it was for everything that I had done for him. What a kid, he said that it understood what I went through during the Gulf War I. I know that I can never wear this medal as I did not official receive it, but I will treasure it always.
