WOW! You’re 26 already! It seems like only yesterday you were a round faced happy baby! By age 10, you were a true ham in front of a camera (note the Navy T-shirt!) and by age 14, a full-fledged tragic teen, busy with baby Max . Now you are a young man, on the underside of 30, traveling the world and becoming a caring, thoughtful, and pretty brilliant adult (OK, I AM your Mom, but you really are brilliant!). Words can’t express how proud I am of the choices you’ve made and the paths you’ve already trod. You are, indeed a special person, in spite of that wacky sense of humor! May your dreams comes true and may you be all that you can be (oops, that’s the Army, isn’t it?!)! Live high---live mighty---live righteously!
