Captain and Commander

Kris (left in Assassin photo) is an Army soldier personified; he probably bleeds testosterone. The nickname his Ft. Bragg soldiers gave him is on his truck license plate -- "BIG NA$TY". You do NOT want to mess with this guy!

He's also a "man of few words" when it comes to e-mailing Mom. This is a typical e-mail response from him: "Yes."

Kris is very close to my husband. "They walk alike, they talk alike," and Steve really misses talking to Kris on the phone. Football season was really lonely for Steve this year - they used to watch the games together "on the phone". Looks like Kris will miss this year's football season too -- with the "extension" we're all so excited about.

Other than missing his wife I think Kris is "in his element" in Iraq.

Well, I must say you have your hands full with that much military. Thanks for stopping by. Now, did you want a sgt dub t-shirt or one with your kids names on it? For a sgt dub, just click in on Sgt Dub's store on my sidebar and it should take you there. If you want something with your kids on it, I can try and help you out with it. Good luck, I know the extensions aren't the greatest news, it hasn't hit us National Guard types yet.

Well now...you sound like you're doing better than you were last week. Good going, girlfriend!
Will Kris and Austin be anywhere near each other?
With my two - the older one will be leaving Korea to come back to the states next month and his younger brother will be going over to Korea at the end of the summer. They would have crossed each other over the Pacific, but my "baby", Austin just found out he'll be heading to ranger school first!!! Can you believe it? Good ole Ft Benning...

I see what you mean about the side, I am sure that section can be made a little wider, I will ask around. I like it.
