Kuma, I know it is tough to send your boy off to war. It gets even tougher on subsequent tours. Remember, he is your son. He is good at what he does. He has been well trained. He will return home safely. God bless SSG Pharr and those who serve with him!

Got home a little while ago and as usual "down winding" from the days challenges on the GS. There are several who have responded to my OP and I did not acknowledge your comments.....but YOU know I appreciate what you said.

I've had a hard day trying to concentrate, just worried about Jake and not even sure if he has arrived at his base yet...guess a lot of this is my ever increasing age...but also knowing I have been in harm's way..not military but on the home front and not anyway comparable to him and those of you who fought every day for US.

I want EACH and EVERY one of you to know I have read all your responses! I'm saving and pasting each page to send to Jake and his soldiers so ALL will know the "majority" of us appreciate what our military does for US! To those who have family serving, have served...well, thanks and God Speed them all home safely! Dam, I wish I could take his place....Just a Dad, patriot and wanting ALL of our Son's & Daughters to come home safe!

Thank you TBH...."I got your six!" Keep 'em coming...I'm sure Jake and his unit will take the comments to stay vigilant, KICK the bad one's *** and get home safe!

Just heard Jake is at his semi-final LAST leg of his journey..been there 2 days now and waiting for the last leg. We tried to call and text today and no response. Wifi is not too good where he is...up and down service. Talked to our daughter-in-law just now and the oldest Grandson is asking where Dad is? Dam....

As many of you know...it never get's easier! Support, love and prayers are all Momma and I can offer...but, his number one request to his FOB is Skoal..LOL, it is what it is so stocking up and a care package will be on the way!

Couldn't live the fabulous lives we live without men like your son. I pray for his, and others, safe return, as well as some comfort from the worries of their families.

My family is so grateful for the incredible gift of freedom, and the peace of mind provided by our warriors destroying the enemy in his own backyard. Send 'em where they belong, boys! God speed your return home.

Heard from our daughter-in-law today our Son moved to another area for a mission. Now we don't have a FOB address for him for a while nor can we message? Can't say where he is, but a colleague of mine who was there gave me some insight and ole' Dad is a little concerned.

And the NFL players who won't stand mean even less to our family right now!! JERKS!

God bless him and all who are serving. Wishing him much success with his mission and a safe return to his lovely family.

As for those over paid thugs on TV they are proof positive if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything. They are badly mis-guided by so-called community leaders and most do not even know why they are sitting.

I had a young couple come to the office today, they bought a acre lot from me at our community in Granbury. The husband is a F35 pilot who has served in several "land of sand" deployments.

We got to talking about my son and I told him I was very worried where he was right now. I feel BETTER...he told me they have so much "air support" where my son is that the firepower is more than most can imagine. Every little bit helps when you are a Dad worried about your kid!
