My son the USAF Major F-15 Pilot, left today for a mission that could be up to a year in Afghanistan...This weekend I went to Florida to celebrate an early Christmas and birthday for both my son and my grandson
Please keep him and all of our troops, and their families, serving in both Iraq and Afghanistan in your daily prayers
Venice, I'm glad you got to spend this time together, before his deployment. What is your son's name, other than Major? Also, please thank him for his service. I don't feel I can say that enough to these brave men and women, who are serving our country.

We donate to the USO a couple times of the year one of which is Xmas. They do alot for the troops. I would encourage everyone to visit their website and at least make a minimum donation. In short, anyone who can even consider cruising has the means to donate in my opinion. I know it's stating the obvious, but if it wasn't for the troops we wouldn't be cruising or doing any other free country activities that we all tend to take for granted.

My stepson deployed to Afghanistan two years ago at this same time.
Luckily, he made it home safely. He was an army sgt. Our thoughts and prayers will be with your son and his family. Also with you....It is hard for a parent at times like these.
God Bless the USA, and also our neighbor in CANADA.
Venice- A big salute from this retired Air Force Master Sergeant to your son and prayers for a safe return. For those who ask your son can also be called by his nickname: Sir .

You got it Venice. Thank him for his service from me. Also tell him if he has time, to do a fly by over the pirates in the Gulf of Aden and blow a few of them out of the water before they hijack anymore ships especially cruise ships. :evil:

Venice, Of course prayers and good thoughts for your son.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
Prayers going out to your family for a safe and quick return home.
