Six Word Saturday


Party for my brother in NJ!!

My brother, Michael has accepted a job with the US Army in Saudi Arabia.  His youngest child just graduated from college, he's a widower, and he says it's now time for him!  So he has a one year contract (that I'm guessing can be renewed), and will be leaving for Fort Bragg next week for orientation and maybe some kind of training before heading to Saudi Arabia.  

His oldest daughter is throwing him a Bon Voyage, We'll Miss You, Dad party at her place today!  It's always a good time when the Mack Family gets together!

Wow Joanie what a brave job for your brother to take. I cannot even imagine being that far from home for so long. Our poor military and people like your brother who volunteer are just amazing!
I hope you are well and enjoying your summer; have you been to the shore?

Thanks for every other excellent post. Where else could anyone get that type of info in such a perfect means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am on the search for such information.
