I got a letter from my daughter in boot camp today.

She said how many of the other girls were saying what awful
dads they have and how they could care less to write to them.

She said it makes her feel sad for them because I was always
there for her and that sometimes my letters are what helps her
to make it through. Then she says "I really am blessed".

Many times as my children were growing up I prayed
"Lord help me to be a good husband and a good daddy"

It seems my prayers were answered

Anyone who has ever been there knows how important letters can be. I was cleaning up my office this week and found a letter that my little sis wrote to me when I was at FT Sill in 2003 telling me about some new calves that were born that winter. Remembering how important the little things can be stirred up a little dust in the room to say the least.

Proud is an understatement of how you should feel. God bless.

Send her some half naked male postcards. DI's love when ppl receive crap like that

One of my buddies who went thru 3 months before me made it a point to send me the most fucked up postcards almost daily.

I sent her a pic of Her and Me wearing Cousin Eddie hats
I'm sure her Instructors got a laugh over that one.

Thank you everyone



To the Dad's my best advice is do whatever
you can to always be there for your kids.

It really does matter.
