While I am on the subject of being proud….my sister sent me this photo of Dwight and his co-workers on the USS Truman. Dwight’s been with this ship for a number of years now and is a more senior guy. I believe that his current 3 week tour (May 2007) is one of several short cruises he’s made. He’s also had several 3 month cruises over the past years. He looks too happy to consider retiring from the Navy but that may be his plan in the near future.
At the same time, being a Navy wife and mom is not an easy thing to do. Kudos to my sister (who is ten years younger than me). She’s really grown and matured over the past years! She and Dwight have three great kids, one will graduate high school next year.
Say what you want about the government that leads this country, but you have only to say “Thanks” to the men and women who work daily to preserve our and others freedoms!
Dwight is sitting to the right of the picture. If you click on the picture, it will direct you to my Flickr account where you can wave your mouse pointer over the crew to locate exactly which one he is. A note will pop up when you are correct.
