Ross Leaves For Afghanistan

On Tues, August 18, Ross reports to Everett, WA and thus begins his one year recall assignment. Afghanistan will be his home where he will be directing a medical team. As the Petersen clan gathered to bid Ross a safe return, he reminded us that he is a very good shot.
A more somber moment with his much loved beagle.

Our families have indeed gone north, south, east and west.........they leave one shore with the sure knowledge that another shore awaits them.

Thank you for this post. I have been so out of touch with everyone lately so this came as a big surprise. We will keep him in our thoughts and prayers, and at the same time say a huge "thank you" for his willingness to serve our country, where we are in need of honorable, good people fighting this battle.
