And he is off again......

Linds and Chris
West Point 2006

My wonderful Cousin Chris....he has left the building Country again.

Today he is heading back to Afghanistan to finish up his first tour.
He was home (Atlanta) for a few weeks to enjoy his mid-tour break. We were hoping to meet up with him on our way home from N.C. a few weeks ago....but he got held up in some mid eastern country......some nerve, right?

The next to best thing to meeting face to face? Skype of course.

Linds has a camera on her pc. She speaks to my Mom, my Aunt and Uncle in Georgia and sometimes to her Grandma who lives 4 miles away.

So we set up a skype chat with Chris. Unfortunately (and normal) we did not have all 4 of us at home when we did it was just Linds and I.

He was a bit pixelated compared to "real life."

I thought he looked a bit "lego-ish." But still cute handsome.

And, no he was not in a parade at the Aunt still had up the Christmas tree. (For Chris)

If you can, please take a moment and say a prayer for his safety as well as all our servicemen and women....they are THE true hero's.


  1. God Bless him... I Thank him for his service to our country and pray for his and all of his fellow service men and women a safe and speedy return.

  2. Just said that prayer. I am so grateful for the people who have served & serve our country.Blessing to them and you too.

  3. Thank him for serving us!
