Oh I know the feeling you are having.... Isn't it wonderful. I hope you have a great time. This is nothing more special, than to have those first few minutes to get caught up. How long will he be with you? Where is he stationed?

It will only be 9 days, but he is hoping to get more leave later in the year before they send him to Iraq.

He is in Germany right now. A post near Frankfurt.

Please give him a big giant hug for Papa and thank him for me for his service. I'm so happy he will have 9 days with you. Better than a cruise any day.

so I assume you are fixing him his favorite meal ? be prepare to share him with his friends and girlfriend..let him sleep in late, use the car, walk around all day with his shirt off to show his muscles (oops- those are all the things i did when i came home from leave)

enjoy him and I'm sure your friends here on CM will keep him in our prayers
