Saying good-bye to dear friends is, by far, the hardest part of military life.
The packing / unpacking /repacking
/ purging / reorganizing,
records and papers,
driving across the country,
or shipping a car across the ocean
.. .... all pales in comparison.
Knowing this guy 14 years ago as a single dude....
and then getting to see him again here in Guam,
getting to know his wife,
and watch them add a son to their family,
Such a blessing!
Lots of love to Laurie, Anita, Ally and Tony
from the Thornton Tribe
