A while back I wrote a post about my nephew Avery and it is time I wrote one about my other nephew Josh.  Josh will likely spend his 21st birthday on a Navy ship in a few weeks.  He is a bright, ambitious and a very responsible and mature young man and he is proud to serve our country!

We’ll get to see him in early December and it may be awhile before we see him again as he is being deployed shortly after that.  We couldn’t begin to express how proud we are of him!

Here are a few pictures of him (the last one is with his mom when he finished basic training):

  1. Oh my, he’s like a grown MAN!
    You have a right to be proud!

  2. I response to your comments about Josh… I am SO PROUD TO HAVE SUCH A WONDERFUL YOUNG MAN. As a Mother of a child serving us in the military, no words can express my Gratitude for his sacrifice and the sacrifice all our other military and their families are making.

    Please anyone that reads this and if by chance your path crosses with anyone in uniform… please stop for one second, if you have to, go out of your way to make a point to just Thank them. I can say……they appreciate all your kind words.

    As for Josh ~ he has accomplished alot in the short amount of time serving. He is now a Petty Officer 3rd Class (in less than 1.5 yrs). Josh has a very good head on his shoulders and is carrying on a very important job on his ship. And when you put your head on your pillow each night ……remember their is a young sailor………keeping watch over you !
