Hi, my name is PFC Mooney you can call me moon-man everybody else does. I am from the town of Avon Park, Florida; and Ive got a question here from Dillon from New Jersey, he asks; "How are you and your family affected when you left for deployment?"

To answer that question well, my family was pretty sad that I was going so was I but I knew that the deployment was going to make me a better person and it makes me appreciate everything I had back in the States a little more. I go on leave in about 3 months and I can't wait to see all my family. So, although it's made us sad, but it's also brought us closer together. I have a brand new nephew to come home to, to play with; I am planning on taking him and my other nephew who is two to Disney World when I get back. So, I am looking forward to that. But all together the deployment has made us all stronger and I just can't wait to get back to them so if you have any other questions for me just hit me up, moon-man out.
