Hey!  Clarksville, Tennessee is a fairly short drive from where I
am...about a 2 hour drive.  I used to live in Clarksville, as a matter of
fact (way back in 1997 and I taught early morning seminary there). 
Anyhoo...I do live within the bounds of the Kentucky Louisville Mission
now.  Do you know which ward your son is serving in?  Back in 1997, there
was the Clarksville Ward, which covered the southeast portion of the city &
its surrounding areas, and another ward (the name of which escapes me just
now), which covered the north & west portions, including the Fort Campbell
area.  Anyway, if he's in the Clarksville Ward, ask him if he knows a Wiles
family (Carroll & Shelia Wiles...their children are pretty much all grown;
I think they still have a teenaged daughter at home, though).
