Giving thanks!!!

Well, we had a really close call today. This morning when Jason went in for PT, his 1SG was telling his Platoon SGT that he needed one NCO 63J(Jason's job) to transfer to another unit...a unit that is deploying in September. Well, there are only 2 of them, Jason and another guy. Jason said, "you know I just came back in Jan, right?" His Platoon SGT had to make a decision before his 10 am meeting. Jason had a doc's appt this morning, so he was not at work until after lunch, so we were just hoping for the best. I just talked to him a few minutes ago and said that the other guy got picked. YAH! for us.....but sorry for the other guy. He just got here in April, right before us, and he has a wife and 2 little girls. While we are so relieved that Jason was NOT picked, its hard to be too happy knowing someone else has to go instead. us by giving thanks for Jason NOT deploying again right away, and say a prayer for the other family that is about to be separated for a year.
