My Precious Son

Kelly, my first-born, is a military man right now,
and he is pretty serious about it. He is at
Fort Eustis in Virginia for AIT in aviation (helicopter mechanics).
This summer, on a family vacation we took together, he was clowning around
with his dessert...a BBQ banana filled with Snicker candy bar slices, enclosed in foil and
heated over the coals until 'done', and then eaten with whipped cream on top.
He is usually a character, and it shows in the picture below.

We all miss him very much, praying for his safety, his protection
and his homecoming for Christmas.
What a gift THAT will be!

Please tell him we appreciate his sacrifice and commitment to his country. I'm sure you are very proud of him.

OK, I've never heard of that "dessert" before! Too funny, but so him. I'm glad to hear he's doing well. May God bless him and his family for their sacrifice to our country.

I know he is a nice man.... if he is anything like his mother.
