My son in Afghanistan last year - he is home safe now but due to go back again in 2009

I didn't take this shot but I am so proud of my boy and our troops that I decided to upload this in honour of the guys and girls out there now who cannot be with their families at this special time of year - Come home safe x

Hi Debbie - a part of my mind is always with them wherever they are in the world - having spent 22 years in the Army I know what it's like to be away in these places.

Lovely shot BTW

We owe them more than we can ever repay Debbie, and they often don't get the recognition they deserve from the governments who send them there.......Bill

I've no immediate connection to anyone serving, but live very close to 40 Commando who have lost a number of brave men this last tour. Very sad.
What a beautiful picture for a proud mum.

Funny that he calls the apaches his toys how cool is that a bit more exciting than the toys he had when he was just a 5 year old little boy Smile

Thank you to my epz family for the words of support it means the world to me
