Hope everyone is getting ready to celebrate the joys of the Christmas season. Hope some lurkers still look in to check on us once in a while. Special note to Laamie: I accidentally deleted your e-mail and cannot find your address. Please resend if you see this.
Marine update: Sgt Ben is done with Iraq for a while. Will begin new job as instructor in the 'Schoolhouse' at the Special Ops Center in Camp LeJeune. No move for him and family (wife Vicki and baby Seamus) so hopefully life will be as normal as it gets in the Marine Corps for them for the next couple of years.
