I am always talking about Tracy but my other son is a real source of pride to. He is a full time firefighter and member of Indiana's Task Force One. I thought you might like to see both of them in there official uniform pictures. Tracys is from his 2003 tour and should be getting a new one for this deployment. His Uniform now had his stripes for Sergant. Will send you a copy when I get one. Hugs

I know you must be extremely proud of both of them. i am an Army wife and I am so proud of my husband. i have pics of him on my profile, because i love talking about him and bragging about him when ever i have the chance. That is so awesome though that you have two in the line of duty, whether it's a soldier or a firefighter. God bless you and your family and tell them I appreciate what they do for our country.

Thank you so much. I am so proud of them and don't know what I did to produce two of them willing to serve their fellow man. I must have done something right along the way. Tell your husband that I have him in my prayers and you have every right to be proud. Hugs

You both have men to be so very proud of! And they need thanks from all of us for being so selfless to give up their time and lives to help others!

Wow. You are blessed to have 2 great sons. I am in Indiana also. I am in Leavenworth, but originally from New Albany. I will see their pictures after sending this to you. I can't see them right now. Not showing for me yet.

Thanks, check out my second discussion to see the soldier. I must say they sure kept me hopping while they were growing up. I guess all that energy got channeled in the right direction. Thank goodness.

You have two very tough sons. Do you know what that says about you, how they 'turned' out? That says they had/have one amazing mother. No way do boys become men like that without a strong and loving influence. You should be proud of them as you are, but they should be proud of you as well.

Thanks for sharing a picture of your son here with us. Your son's sure have made a mother proud. If I had sons, I would be bragging on them all the time if they were serving like your son's are doing. I will now go and respond to your other discussion with the pic of Tracy.

This is so cool that you are sharing these precious photos with us. I saw the pic of Tracy and left a note there for you. I think you had told me about Todd before.
