Today is my son Matt's thirty-fourth birthday.
He is spending it in Afghanistan with the United States Army -- his fourth deployment since 2003 (three in Iraq and now in the 'Stan." It is hard for me to believe that he is that old, but he is, now with two sons and a daughter of his own. I remember vividly the day he was born -- the day we almost lost him as well -- as one of the proudest of my life. Happy birthday, Matt. I'm proud of you. Come home safe.
