Home, mission on troops' minds

Like so many of the soldiers I lead, I miss family and friends at home in the Coastal Empire and beyond. There is not a second that goes by that I don't think about the families and the community we left behind.

I imagine, from time to time, you all get tired of reading about my adventures in toddler town and would like to hear from other parents. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when Hinesville Public Relations Manager Krystal Britton Hart took me up on my offer to guest write this week's column.
