I love the contrast with the fading sun and of course all the gun's pointing to the heavens. I really like that my Son is not one of them!
On another note, SN2 is safely in Kyrgyzstan and awaiting the charter flight back to the U.S. along with the rest of the 1/5 Marines. That should happen sometime next week. Mother, Daughter and Father are well, happy.
