The Old Man called for about 5 minutes on Sunday. He's doing OK, counting down the days. He wanted me to say "Hi" to everyone for him and that he loves and misses us all. He didn't say too much, but he'll be back from rotation shortly and will (hopefully) be able to call more often.
There has been a lot of activity in the area lately. Keep the Marines and their families in your thoughts and prayers. They'll be home soon!
