I Got Your Back

I am a small and precious child, my dad has been sent to fight…
The only place I’ll see his face, is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days for my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My Dad has got your back.

I am a caring mother. My son has gone to war…
My mind is filled with worries that I have never known before.
Everyday I try to keep my thoughts from turning back.
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.

I am a strong and loving wife, with a husband who had to go.
There are times I am terrified in a way most never know.
I bite my lip, and force a smile, as I watch my husband pack…
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husband has got your back…

I am a soldier…proud to serve and standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine, by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing, the thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I’ll come home.
It’s me who’s got your back.

Tony Broke His Ankle! Ouch!
October 4th 2002

During a night jump in very bad fog, Tony had a bad landing and broke his ankle. He went to the hospital where they put on a temporary cast. He has an appointment on Tuesday to get his permanent cast put on. We will know more details at that time as to how long he will be on profile. He took two pictures of his ankle and will send more with all of him the picture this time.

Please leave a message for Tony in his Dreambook.

The mission of the Field Artillery Fire Support Specialist Course is to train Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) 13F Advanced Individual Training soldiers to perform duties required as a member of a Fire Support Team: locate and identify targets, calls fr fire, map reading and land navigation, and voice and digital communications.
This is a Powerpoint presentation, you will need Powerpoint to view these files. This is the actually course.

Major duties. The fire support specialist leads, supervises, or serves in intelligence activities including target processing in FA cannon, rocket, and missile battalions. Here is a video that will give you an inside glimpse at what Tony was trained for.

The education of a soldier is more than a piece of paper or a diploma-- we teach you the skills to be a paratrooper-- and also lessons in life. We hope you will find your three weeks with us as rewarding, challenging, physically demanding and emotionally uplifting. Hunters from the Sky!!

Under Construction

Tommy sent me this song and said it sounded like something we would say to Tony.
To Tony...

"I Hope You Dance"

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give fate a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake but it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out, Reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

Lee Ann Womack
