Good to have you here Linda!

I have a buddy in 10th Mtn. Div.

I was with 3rd Batt. 75th Ranger Regiment out of Ft. Benning, Ga... with your son's MOS I am sure he spent some time there. And it is the best feeling in the world to know the people you are fighting for care so give him my regards.

Amen!

Linda- where is Caldwell? I was stationed at Ft. Sam Houston, but that's the extent of my Texas travels. Have friends in Lufkin though.
