Friendly Faces, Smiling Faces

Friends From The Big Sandbox

The idea for this page came about when I started to receive a lot of cool pictures from my friends who are deployed in the desert.  One is a personal friend and the others I got to know through a support group called Operation Military Pride.  As I started to know each of them better, I discovered wonderful things about each of them.  There are many hidden talents among our men and women of the armed forces that you do not read about.

These are a few of my friends from the big sandbox.  Please join me in thanking them for their hard work and dedication when the call to duty  brought them away from their home and love ones.
