Family in the war

A paper in Traverse City, MI wrote an article about my cousin, Jason King, an Army Apache pilot that has been injured. I haven't seen the guy since he and I were both kids but I still was disturbed by the news. I remember we used to travel to the Detroit area and our family would stay with his family. I used to bring a tape recorder and record his father's Bill Cosby records. I was a bootlegger from the get-go. I was curious as to how I would feel if I found that someone I knew was over there. Would I change my mind? Heck no, I'm glad he's going to be alright. Hopefully he won't get to go back even though he wants to. He may get his wish, though, it looks we might be there a while.
