'Just want him to know how proud we are'
I just want my son to know how proud I am that he is serving our country!! This is my 25 year old son, Justin Beecham. His wife Jen as well as his family await his safe return home. He's an 88M Motor Transporter Operator stationed in Iraq with his squad, the 206th TC. We wish him the best and just want him to know how proud we are of him!!
