We're Not Childless Anymore!

Cost of raising a son to age 18; $249,180
(Where did that number come from?)

Cost of training a soldier; $400,000
And THAT one?

Cost of a flight from Baghdad to Chicago; can't get one without a "special carrier."

Boots on the ground in your own house; PRICELESS!

We have a soldier boy home for R&R for a while! This is a great day!

(If anyone would like to send a message to MAP, a special e-mail has been set up at soldierboy8545 at yahoo dot com.)
