The Father's Day Edition. A slow start, but we'll add to this as the day goes on.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY [Dixie Sappers - in Iraq]
I hope that everyone is having a great Father's Day. I woke up around 3:30 a.m. this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. I guess with this being first year without my father and my son in Turkey and can't talk to him just won't let me sleep. I got up this morning and went ahead and did some work on the computer until it was time to go eat breakfast and then go to church. I think there were several others that couldn't sleep this morning because there was more rambling around this morning at 4:00 and 5:00 a.m. than on most mornings.
Happy Father's Day [Mustang23 - in Iraq]
Last year, there was no big fan fare for Father's Day back home. But we did get a lot of work done. The roof on our covered porch had been poorly repaired by *ahem* a couple guys my Dad and I know *cough* a few years back when the entire roof was re-shingled and a part of the porch roof was replaced. When we fixed it the first time we left a bit of a leak and the wood over a few years on the porch rotted, so my dad and I spent a whole weekend re-roofing the entire porch from scratch.
Soldier's children face second year without dad on his big day [Lance in Iraq]
The News-Sentinel has a very nice 278th-related Father's Day piece today. Though this is the second we have missed since mobilizing, I can say without fear of violating opsec that we will be home for the next one.
Happy Fathers Day [From My Position - in Iraq]
I am jumping on the band wagon with Chris and Lisa from TwoBabesandabrain with this picture (dirty word alert) on why daddies shouldn?t baby sit.
Happy Father?s Day, Dad! [Dadmanly - in Iraq]
On the Occasion of Father's Day, I wanted to share a story about a Great Man.
I have mentioned previously that my father resembles Abraham Lincoln.
I think that?s pretty cool for a Dad, to look like Abe. The gaunt face. The beard. The sorrowful eyes. Solemnity.
That?s how he looks, that?s not how he acts, thank goodness!
Happy Dads Day, Pops [Pass the Brass]
Well,I can't say much.
Dad's quite a character. He has his moments....of insanity. But I love 'im for his totally absurd jokes. He really has some doozies. Those jokes where you laugh at it due to it's absurdity. Yah, he has alot of those. But that's what I love about my dad. I got my sense of humor from him. And now...
Honoring the Fathers [Baldilocks]
To my biological father without whom I would not have life?
To my late uncle who nurtured me in my formative years?
To my dad who has earned every gray hair on his head honestly?
My cup runneth over... [Maj K - in Iraq]
Many of you know that my wife and I are expecting our first child.
Never throw Soccer Balls When Peaceful [SFC Kevin Kelly's Dixie Sappers - in Iraq]
We pulled up to our first stop and dismounted our vehicles. There weren't many kids out today so it kind of threw up a red flag. Usually we are swamped with kids. If you don't see kids, usually a sign that a bad person is around.
This one's for my Dad [Ma Deuce Gunner - in Iraq]
Happy Father's Day, Dad...
Thanks for all your support, your encouragement, your advice, and your teachings. I have learned much about how to be a responsible husband and someday father, through your example. I am so blessed to be your son. I love you, Dad.
Happy Father's Day [ARGGHHH!]
Go, hang out with your Dads, or your kids. If you no longer have a Dad, or kids - go... bowling! Yeah, that's it, bowling!
This is the first time in a long time there has been no kid at home, he having fled the nest to live in Manhattan, learn about apartment living, and asking people "You want fries with that?" And don't make assumptions about Manhattan, visitors - you will most likely be wrong...
Happy Father's Day [V.I.M]
Wishing all fathers a Happy Father's Day. Many fathers are unable to be home with their loved ones today. May all of you have a safe day and be able to speak to the people who love you the most.
Happy Father?s Day [StrykerNews]
The administrators, moderators, contributors, and readers of StrykerNews.com extend a sincere Happy Father?s Day greeting to all the fathers deployed with the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division, Stryker Brigade Combat Team. Your families miss you, but they are ever so proud of your strength, courage, and service to your country.
Happy Father's Day [365 and a Wake Up - in Iraq]
One of my favorite pictures is of a laughing little boy lofted up on his father?s shoulders. Many years have passed since the camera captured that snippet of time - now I?m as old as my father was when the picture was snapped. But in many ways my father is still holding me up.
It's Hot! [Who's Your Baghdaddy - in Iraq]
This was taken at about 3:00 p.m.today. The themometer was out of direct sunlight so it was literally 120 degrees in the shade. Of course, this themometer only goes up to 120 so it may have been warmer.
Fathers Day [Hoike - in Afghanistan]
A lot of deep thoughts and deep conversations going on yesterday. It started off at dinner, where four infantry-types sat down to a nice Father's Day dinner (happy father's day, Dad, btw) with the topic of ketchup packets. One of my young specialists had an idea to revolutionize the distribution of ketchup in packet form.
The Meaning of Father's Day [Mr Minority Reports]
Today being Father's Day, I am sad that I don't get to recognize my Father who died 4 years ago. But I do get to enjoy my 2 sons getting to celebrate with me.
I have found that being a Father is more than impregnating a mother and providing food and clothing for your child. Being a Father comes with great responsibilities - bring your child up to become a proper adult. This means instilling in them honor, integrity, loyalty, duty, assume responsiblity for your own actions, fairness, faith, judging people by their heart and actions, not by their race or skin color and a drive to add something to world,...
Happy Father's Day! [Blackfive]
This morning Little Blackfive is going to buy me breakfast. I love chilaquiles so we're going to a Mexican restaurant for brunch. He's been making a big production out of it and wants to use his piggy bank money to pay for it. It'll be funny walking into the place with Little Blackfive proudly toting his bank. I'll have to figure out how to get the money back into his bank later.
