One of my twin sons is also 3/7 Kilo Co. Wpns. Platoon.  My other twin son is with 3/4 already deployed to Afghanistan.  Plan to be here a lot.

My son is a twin also. His Brother is not in the military. I hate the thought of a second deployment. <sigh>



I am taking this deployment with the first one one day at a time.  Otherwise, I don't think I would survive.  I don't even know how I will say Goodbye to the 2nd one.

Beth, he's in good company in weapons platoon. Did you see the video shot with the helmet cam of weapons platoon in action during their last deployment?



my son is now in 3/7 Kilo company, was wondering what site is the helmet cam of weapons platoon in action? Thank You.


It's on youtube. Type in the youtube search box 3 7 kilo then click the link that says kilo company.
