My son Patrick is 8 and his Dad has been deployed in Bagram, Afghanistan for the past 7 or so months. Patrick lives in Oregon with me and his Dad returned home to Illinois last week. We were unable to fly Patrick out to see his Dad return so Patrick worked for almost a week on this board to send him. Patrick watches the news every morning and every night so that he's aware of what is going on around the world, it broke my hear to see him worry about his father, but the love he poured into this board is so apparent.
