My son-in-law is a missing piece in our extremely close family. He is in the army stationed at Fort Stewart after returning last month from Afghanistan. He has served in Iraq and Korea among others - and is EOD - in my estimation one of the most dangerous of the MOS' in the armed forces. Like many of the army wives, my daughter and granddaughter have to endure the family holidays without "TIM". He has become such a major part of our family that without him there is a huge void. We all - Erin, Andrew, Charlie, Cheryl, John, and of course his wife Adrienne and daughter Hailey appreciate the sacrifice he makes everyday of his life by taking a position in the Armed Forces which is life-threatening and takes him away from that which is most important to him. We miss him and are so grateful there are so many more troops who have the loyalty and commitment that he does. We love you - Tim.
