It doesn't get better.................

...than this. I came home from work today, a little late, to find my son home for good from his stint in the Marines! He wasn't suppose to be home for 3 more weeks but surprised the $hit out of us and came home today! It seems everybody knew but me and my wife. What a GREAT surprise! I'll post some pics tomorrow after I get them from my daughter!

Never mind tomorrow, she gave them to m tonight!

Nick, that is fantastic news. Your son can be very proud that he fulfilled his assingment and did this great nation proud. I am sure it was hard during his absence but his service was justified.
