Happy Birthday, John II

Happy Birthday to our son, John II, who turns 37 today. Below is a picture of him at age 5.
He is now a helicopter pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps and is currently deployed to parts unknown on an aircraft carrier named the USS Bonhomme-Richard. Yesterday was his and Kerri's 10th wedding anniversary. I know she misses him and we all wish him well and safe flying.

Happy Birthday, Son. I love you.



  1. Love the photos! Great post, Sally. I *do* miss him, and love him too. Cheers, husband!

  2. I happened to see your blog via my BHR Google Alert. (It sends me notices when the phrase Bonhomme Richard pops us somewhere on the web.) It is nice to "meet" you.

    My boy is on the BHR as well--he's a Navy Aerographer's Mate. His birthday comes on January 15. This is his first deployment so his wife, baby *and mom* are still getting used to military life. Man, I wish they could email us for Christmas! I will get to spend the holiday with his grampa, grama, DIL and grandbaby in San Diego this week at least. :)

    Happy Birthday and safe flying to your son, and best wishes to you and his wife, Kerri. Merry Christmas to all of you!
