    Anthony:

    My prayers are with your Dad and your family. May God and your grandfather shield him from harm and bring him safely home to his loved ones.

    As you know a lot of us on the Wall consider each other an extended family of a sort. Out thoughts are with your Dad and with you. Your Dad must have faith in you and his family to carry on while he is gone, or he wouldn't have gone. Stick to your schoolwork and chores, and be sure to help your Mom, and January will be here before you know it. WW

    The important mission

    Deployments are tough on families, it isn't ever easy to have home life disrupted this way. Oddly, it's the time the car rebels, the AC passes out and the boiler goes flat... for that, fortunately, many here can help.

    It's hard on wives and children but at the same time it's the sort of stuff that is worth looking up to in a father.

    Best wishes to you, Anthony, and your father. Don't sweat the small stuff.

    Son.............................................

    I finally got to meet you at Ann's house last month, and I must say, it was a pleasure, but no surprise at all because you are Darin's Son. Mark is right nearby and I'm only 3 hours away if you need me, pal. My email is plumbing3C@aol.com and my cell is 516-322-2881. Call anytime you need to talk my man. THe same goes for your sister. We're here. Dad will be back for Spring turkey and maybe a nice winter Cod trip down here on Long Island. I'm sure it is very, very tough right now, but your dad IS a GREAT man for what he is sacrificing and you can be DAMNED proud, Boy. At your call... Matt Mad Dog Sweeney and Family

    Maddog's right. Come here ANYTIME you want to talk. Your Dad has ALOT of friends here and we are a big family.

    Remember this, your Dad has friends here not just because we like him but because we RESPECT him. He is a honerable man who is doing his duty for his country. Even thought its tough for you to see him go, be proud of him. You can help him by doing well in school and helping your Mom out as much as possible. He can't do his work if he is worrying about you. Remember your with him every day.

    The first few days are the hardest but time happens quickly and soon he will be home with you again.

    Come here anytime you want Pal. Your Welcome and with friends :)
