Thanks, Son

Just what you want to see, your son, in a war zone, standing in front of a IED damaged vehicle of the type he drives!

The picture is downsized for OPSEC. The original is 1.54 MB. You can see individual cords in the ripped tires.

Since I didn't raise him to be weak and fearful, guess I have no one but myself to blame. Like most parents, I suspect, I would trade places with him just to keep him safe.

UPDATE Talked to FDIL today. She thinks he may have been driving, or riding, in the vehicle. Yikes! Whatever way it goes, I'm glad the vehicle performed as designed.

She's probably right! Somehow I don't see him standing in front of something like that unless he was 'involved' in one way or another. Thoughts and prayers will continue for him!

I agree with Old NFO. You didn't raise him to run away from a fight. Stand and Deliver!!! The whole family is proud of him. We totally support him & his mission along with troops wherever they may be serving. At home or overseas.
