Only The Shadow Knows

Ithink this picture is kind of interesting. And scary, and I will be glad when the Shadow is no longer possible to be seen on the desert sands of Iraq! The Shadow is my 27yr old son. He does not need to be a Shadow on the sand! I don't need him to be in Iraq. I need him in the United States! But, the United States needs him in Iraq. The Army needs him to be a Shadow. The Army needs him to use the Big Boy guns, and the Big Boy stryker vehicles. The Army owns him now, not me. Not that I ever did own him. He was just on loan to me for a number of years, until he became a Big Boy. One more month to go. Then the Big Boy will be back in Fairbanks, AK. Clinton............I am so darn proud of you, my whole being just swells with that pride! Love, Hugs, and Kisses as usual, and always............my son.

Dear Gloria!!! Our HEARTS AND SINCERE THANKS GO OUT TO CLINTON AND HIS COMMRADES FOR THEIR SERVICE. Thanks to you for raising such a fine son too. We look forward to hearing of his return to Alaska next month. After a year in the desert he will certainly enjoy the fall and winter in Fairbanks,
Send him our regards next time you write or speak.
