"Leaving on a Jet Plane..."

Not me, but the solider. His leave ended yesterday when he boarded a flight to the great state of Texas and this morning he will be Korea bound.

South Korea of course, though the exact location is unknown at this moment. There are three potential places he could end up but he won't know till he arrives 17 hours from now. He will live and work there for at least the next year.

We are so proud of him and everything he has accomplished, but still sad that we won't see him for so long. I hate thinking of the holidays we'll miss being together and how he may change during his year away.

If you have a free minute today please say a little prayer for him. And us.

Father, I ask you to comfort my friend tonight. I ask you to bless her and the son that she has just sent to serve his country. Please give her a peace about his placement and please give him wisdom and discernment in his military duty.
We ask this in your Son's name,

Love you Brandy.

I spent a year in Germany as a kid with my stepdad, who was in the Army. I can honestly say that it was one of the highlights of my life. I am certain that this will be the same for him.

He has probably already arrived by now, but I'll be thinking of him as he settles in to his new home and of you and S as the proud parents missing him.

I hope everything is going well. My husband was in Korea for a year.
