Since 2009, I have be...

    During his five year military career, my special force’s army ranger son Nate totaled five war time deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sporadically, during that time, he would call me from overseas and because of the time zone changes, those calls would usually arrive around 2:00am. I was always awakened from a deep sleep hearing my son&rsq...
