HAPPY 21ST BIRTHDAY, NOAH !!!!
Have a happy day. Be safe. Be sure you have a DD. And remember that the hangovers once you're 21 are worse than the ones before. We don't know why it is. It just is.
All our love -- always. Mom & Dad
The emotion that came with this birthday are so intense this year for me. Perhaps it is because he is the youngest. Perhaps it is because he is so special. Perhaps it is because of what he has been through this year: Deployed... Wounded... the loss of 19 of his friends and fellow soldiers... the memorials... escorting his friend home... the funerals... the families left behind... The thought that had he been there that October day, he probably would have been in that HUMMV with Tommy and Tim and Jeff and Rich and Sgt. Summers...
Although is he changed... and he has been trying as best he can to adjust to his world, there is nothing else to say except that we are so grateful that he is still in our world. We are exceptionally proud to call him our son. Our soldier. Our hero.
