I asked my brother what he would consider to be the best part of this day. He said:
Talking to kids on the webcam....young servicemen and women don't know this but 15-20 years ago I would go on deployment and it could be almost a week between phone calls or letters. When the ship pulled in that was it, mail call and stand in line to get access to the AT&T phones. Of course that is a double edge sword, servicemen will now expect this level of service all the time. That will not be the norm. But I like it.
This is Day 47.
