Went to Louisville, right next to Yoseyville to pick up my oldest son who has been fighting in the war. it was great. While he was there he has been through alot many battles many injuries, but he back and he alive. here is a list of the honors he received.

2 purple hearts
Army comendation medal with valor
Army achievement medal
Good conduct medal
National defense medal
Afghan Campaign medal
NATO medal
Combat Action Badge
Global war on terrorism service medal
and several more

Damn I'm proud of my son. He also is receiving another medal for saving a small Afghan childs life.

Here are some pics of the occasion.

The first pic is of my son and me, I am so proud of him. I now realize he's twice the man that I am.

The second pic is: from left to right.

Me, my wife, my grandson, and my mother.

The third pic is me with my old friend 'Governor Bashire"

Also after looking at these pics, I realize that I'm one weird looking mother fucker.

I love my son the war hero.

No such thing as to proud of someone willing to risk their own life, freedom, and future for the freedom of someone they have never met or will even appreciate the fact they are doing it. But because of people like your son we live in the greatest country on earth. Tell him thanks for all of us here at benz world

You're not weird you just have a couple of screws loose.
Your son looks like you by the way, so rest assured the milkman just got your goat or maybe the chicken.
Dude, when he's all rested and settled ask him about the Benz. As I told you he's got dibs.

I already did ask him about the Benz, he said he didn't know about that. he was trying to be like me and have a Benz. SO IF ANYONE HAS AN OLD BENZ THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO DONATE TO A WAR HERO LET ME KNOW.

Congrats on your son's safe return home. Please extend my thanks to him for his service. :)

And it's never too much for a father to show pride for his son.

Talk about a proud poppa! I hate this fucking war and the decisions that led us to it, but I love every one of those men and women over there and their families who worry for them every day they are away. There is no greater honor than serving your country.

Wow, how freaking cool is that. Congratulations on his safe return! :thumbsup:

And smile once in a while when the camera's flashy thing is about to go off. Jesus, you guys look like you're going to shoot someone over a copper gutter or something. ;)

Wait, just got a phone call...it's Grizzly Adams; he'd like his shirt & beard back. :D
