The hardest car ride ever!

My youngest son, the one who is in the marines, went back to North Carolina today. He was home for two weeks for his pre-deployment leave. I had to drive him to the air port, it was very hard. He will be in NC for 2 to 3 weeks then will be deployed to Afghanistan. It was very hard to let him go because he will be gone for 8 to 9 months.

The Marines definitely take care of their own. Your son is in good hands.
