sweepin’ the clouds away….

    Thank you for your coverage on this wondeful show. I had the pleasure of attending this with my two sons; one is 14mths old and the oldest is five. My older son’s father died in Afghanistan this past November. After awhile the shock settles and families are left to pic up the pieces. Having the opportunity to take him to a show like this where he was thanked for being a member of a military family brought tears to my eyes. I realize this show was focused on National Guardsmen and women and families of soldiers deployed currently….to a five year old walking around with dog tags around his neck and a picture of his deceased father in his pocket…..well, this show was for him. Great pictures and God Bless All of You.

      He had a blast. He felt important and two soldiers in the press box stopped to talk to him on the way out. He showed them everything and they gave many high fives and told him his father was a hero. I stood and cried and smiled. I was so proud of my little man. I spent six years in the Army (where I met his father). When we went overseas we had several USO shows. I think it is amazing the USO is stepping up and thanking the families because they are the soldier’s backbone. If the family at home is strong the soldier can do his/her job and be a better soldier. The families are the true unsung heroes and KUDDOS to the USO and the First Lady for recognizing them!. Thank you for your thoughtful words and I wish you and your family the best.

    Lynette, you and your sons will be in my prayers this Palm Sunday when I go church.

      Thank you very much. I do not need the prayers as much as my son Landon does. I couldn’t imagine losing one of my parents at five. He has good days and bad….angry and sad….but he is a strong little man. Just to let anyone know, if they want to read about his father, his name was SSG David Paul Senft. Although there has been much accusations and assumptions that his death was a result of suicide, there are new revelations that point to possible murder. We will see. Whether murder or suicide it doesn’t change the fact that he served four tours and he left behind a little boy. Happy Easter to all of you and thank you for your kind words.
