Our Marine

This is what a Marine does when he's home from the war: He cuddles with his faithful friend, Dusty. This picture almost makes me cry...such devotion.

Hi Ms. Gracie:

Two captions immediately came to my mind when I saw this photo - "Home Sweet Home" and "My Buddy." Thank you for sharing this photo. I often take what seem like simple things for granted - a moment like this (especially, in the context of your grandson's service in Iraq) really speaks to their deep and cherished meaning.

Again, many well wishes to your grandson on his safe return and many thanks to him for his service. May all of you enjoy many more moments like this.

Take care.

Levon
