Well today is the day that Lamont left for Afghanistan. He boarded his plane at 4am and headed to Bangor Maine where he was greeted by a wonderful group of people who call themselves the Maine Troop Greeters. They greet the soldiers as they arrive and take pictures of them. I think that is a wonderful moral booster and makes the families back home feel great knowing someone was there to make them feel good! I snagged a couple of pictures they took of Lamont and wanted to share them here. My baby looks so tired, of course that has alot to do with him only getting a half an hour of sleep last night. But that's okay because it's a 15 hour flight to Kabul so i'm sure he'll make up for it!
Baby when you finally get to read this I hope you know how incredibly proud we are of you. You are our hero and couldn't ask for a better husband and daddy. We love you!
