This evening we had a nice evening with the Andersen family. He is leaving for a 3 month TDY soon, so we gave him our predeployment briefing. Even though he is not going to the desert or even though he is not going to be gone for a year, this is his and his wife's first extended time apart. So we thought it would be appropriate to given them the briefing and share some of our experiences with them.
Today was Sister Berry's birthday, so we sang a happy birthday song to hear over the telephone.
