America

I snapped this photo last week as our local National Guard

was deploying to Kuwait for a year of duty.

This young lad tugged at my heartstrings as he held his Dad in a deathgrip.

I posted it on Facebook for all the participants to view and was contacted by

his Mom. Her identification of their son made it even more special.

 

Please support your local soldiers and their families!!!
