My youngest son, Jacob, is my hero. He enlisted in the Army in 2004, a few weeks before his 20th birthday. He served his first tour in eastern Afghanistan (Christmas Day 2004 pictured) as a mortarman with the 82nd Airborne. After his honorable discharge, he was subsequently recalled to active duty in 2009 and served a second tour in Afghanistan. He has never looked at the sacrifices he's made for our nation as anything special, but I honor his courage and dedication.
