Every Sunday morning my husband and I attend church. It is important to us. It draws us closer to God and each other. The best Sundays are when we have the boys and we all sit together as a family. It is something I look forward to all week long. Sitting together in church as a family brings a sense of togetherness and closeness. So I was surprised this past Sunday when Jay said we were not going to church. Instead, as a family, we went to watch and participate in the send off of the 527th Engineer Battalion. This group of 150 National Guardsmen and women left Sunday for a year-long de ployment as part of Operations Spartan Shield, Freedom’s Sentinel and Inherent Resolve.
