Look at this happy face. This is Mark, son of a Beta Sigma Phi sister, holding a box of homemade cookies his mama sent him. Yes, that funny looking stuff is bread...packed in the layers to help keep the cookies fresh for their long journey.
Leet has had plenty of practice sending this son of hers *stuff* while deployed, see he has served a tour in Iraq, and now he is serving another tour in Afghanistan.
This is just one serviceman protecting us and our freedom. I wanted you to see his face. He is not nameless. This is Mark. Look into his eyes and know that he is real...he loves, and is loved...very much. He is proud of what he is doing, and signs his emails "Proudly serving." I have never met Mark. In fact, I have never even met his mama face to face, but I do know her through our online chapter. And I know that she and their family are counting the days till August, when this fine fella comes back home. What rejoicing that will be!
Thanks, Mark, and please pass on thanks to all the other troops over there from all of us back here in the USA. God bless you all. Stay safe.
Y'all go over and check out my friend Sarge, one of the most patriotic fellas I know...I sure love that guy, and Dick doesn't mind a bit! Thanks to both of you for proudly serving our country!
FREEDOM is never FREE. Never forget.
