My proud sister

sent along this picture of her oldest son, his son, and his beautiful wife, a just-promoted Captain in the United States Army. She's a nurse stationed in Hawaii. Will be getting out later this year and coming home here to NH, hopefully to farm, which is what he has been itching to do for the past four years.
BTW, Patria, this young man is the oldest brother of the one who's in flight school in Pensacola.

Congrats Les! You and your family all have a right to be proud--a great looking family, doing a great thing supporting our nation.

Stop-loss or not, as I recall the promotion to Captain came with one of the more-healthy military pay raises, which is always welcome...especially with a child.

Congrats again, and please give this old soldier's best to the new Captain and family!

Nice looking lady, sister has a right to be proud. But, "Can You Say Stop-Loss". My son was suppose to get out of the Air Force Reserve. He already spent six years in the army and three more in the reserve. They just laughed and reminded him of the military's stop-loss program.

My oldest son in still in the nave in Hawaii. Gotta make a trip to visit before he leaves. Want to go Marlin fishing.

What a beautiful family. And stationed in Hawaii I bet they're having a great time also.
Got a call from my son but we talked for only 2 minutes. He said he would write and tell me all about it, but that the free time he has is to get some hours of sleep. So I don't know yet what's going on, I'm still waiting.

I think they've pretty well had a bellyful of Hawaii. If she was going to stay in, they would be transferred to Alaska which sounded a lot better to them but he's a real farm boy at heart and they want to come home. Been there almost four years. After a while, they say you really know you're on an island.
But I suppose you know all about that and it prolly doesn't bother you.

I think I know how they feel, I love my island but sometimes it can seem tooooo small for me. So I became a travel agent:-)

Your sister has a right to be proud!

Thank your Neice-In-Law for serving for me, and thank your Nephew for being enough of a man to help her along the way!

That boy looks like he needs a good head scruffing!
I hated that as a kid, so I do it every chance I get...

Young Calvin Laurent Roy turned one year old on New Year's Day. His dad named him after Cal Ripken.
My sis lives in Bath, NH (pronounced "baaahth") which is right on the Connecticut River, just north of Woodsville. (Part way to your place from here).
