Aaron in Iraq

Aaron is also in Iraq, he left December 13th about 2 weeks after Owen. He is in Baghdad. This is his 2nd tour in this country. He is a tanker. He misses his beautiful family alot. I can understand why. They are awesome. Please pray for him to be safe too. My sister lives down the street from the Secretary of the Army. When she told him her two nephews had enlisted he told her that anyone who enlists in the time of war is a great patriot. I truly believe this. Owen and Aaron had great examples to follow. Jan was in the army, Grandad Leo was in the army in WWII, Grandaddy Homer was in the army during the Korean crisis. Their uncle Steve is a pilot in the US Airforce, ret. and their Great Grandfather Frank was in the National Guard during WWI. A great legacy to follow.


  1. What an awesome post! And a cool picture! You sure to have great boys! Thanks for being an example to me...hopefully I can raise my boys in a similar fashion.

  2. Colleen, I didn't know you had a blog. I'll have to come by and check it out often. What wonderful sons. You should feel so proud of the men you've raised. What a testament to the kind of mother you are.
