TUESDAY, MAY 11th.
Day 366 of CPT Patti's deployment in on behalf of her country and of humanity.

Anyway...it has been a year. Today I am putting together a special box for her...stuff that will appeal to her softer side...and will be sending it once the last item arrives in the post.
How many couples ever celebrate an anniversary of a year apart?
Me...I don't want to do such again.
