A number of researchers we know followed "Biscuits" blog back in 2005/6 when he was stationed in Iraq. I also sent out update emails to a number of friends. It was a tough time during a very serious stage of the Iraq War. We are so pleased that all of our Military are finally coming home from Iraq!
Biscuits followed that with a tour in Afhanistan in 2009. The story was a bit different, as the assignment was in a quiet area. It was also different because he had eloped as his unit was being deployed. When he returned, he and his happy bride settled in, had a daughter and focused on graduating.
Today was a very special day, as Biscuits and his wife both graduated from the University of Georgia. An hour later, he was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
We are very proud of "Biscuits". As you probably guessed - he is our son.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
