So the USO (united service organization) has places in Iraq and Kuwait and such on the base that the men can read stories to there children and send them home a video of it. The kids loved it. They all gathered around the couch and watched them on the computer. each story he read was sent home for them. It is really nice for the guys moral. Jim was having a bad day over there and one of the guys had told him about it. HE sent 3 videos with him reading 4 books. he sang the babies a lullaby on one of them. It is very important for the babies to hear his voice and see his face so they will know him when he gets home. The older kids are more attached to Jim and miss him horribly. at the start of the first video I could see the stress and hear it in Jim's voice. through out the videos I seen him start to look better and feel happier and joke around. IT made him happy to send the videos and it made the kids happy to see them. he even read a Dr Seuss book to The oldest.. who is 14 lol.. it was funny and made us all laugh. And it made troy happy not to be left out even if it was a kids book.
