Today his children sleep upstairs. Today his wife waits in the hospital for his third child to be born.
Today he is in somewhere in Helmand Province in Afganistan. With his men. With his Marines.
Today I am proud of my son.
Before this extraordinary day Clint came home for a visit before leaving. And we did ordinary things. Watched OU play UC. Racked leaves. Watched Reeder at her gymnastics class. Ate together. Found our pumpkins for Halloween. Together. Ordinary times. Together.
