Mothers’ Day For Soldier’s Mom

Mothers' Day can be difficult when one of your children is overseas. Kelley Weber of Beatrice is one such mother. Her son Jacob is part of the Army's 227th Aviation Battalion…and has been in Iraq for two months now. Even though he's far from home…Jacob called his mom to wish her a Happy Mother's Day. Kelley says, “I was just very happy to hear from him. I know he's got so many other things to be thinking about and doing over there that Mother's Day…I'm surprised he remembered.”  Kelley did enjoy the day with her husband and her three other children. She says while she loved the phone call, she says her dream gift would be for her son and the other soldiers to come home safely.
