Howdy Dale,

I can't tell you how much Flat Stanley has enriched my life. My oldest son, an F-16 pilot in the USAF, brought him to our home last year on his return from patrolling over Iraq. Since then FS has been attending Elder Hostel programs I teach, helping with golden eagle and American kestrel research, and has become part of our family life. Next month he'll be leaving with another of my sons on a church mission to Puerto Rico.
