    Our son has finished his tour in Afghanistan and not only back in the USA but back in Texas!! We can't see him for another week at the "welcome home" ceremony. So proud of him and sending prayers for all our troops to come home safely.

    Our other son has been living in Bulgaria for four years. He will move back to Texas with his wife and year old daughter (grand daughter we have not met in person), a week after his brother gets back. They will both live in the Austin area and we are so glad to have them all close again.

    Fantastic and to have him so close by, too. Thank him for his service to our country and his commitment to his family and the military. Land of the free because of the brave!!

    I am so happy for you and your rejoined family! Austin is a fabulous place for young people -- lots of opportunity, things to do, lower cost of living, competitive shopping, sights to see -- they'll love it. And if you can bear I-35, you can get there in 4 hours for a lovely visit. Great year ahead for all of you!

    Good news for you. As most of my children are scattered all over the USA and don't see them often I know how you must feel to have them nearby. Thank you all for sharing him to keep us all safe. God bless you all.

    I'm so glad for you that your son is home - I would be lost if my only (child) son went overseas. And my son is moving to Austin this weekend for jobs! I'm glad to hear it is a good place to live for young people. Thank your son and his family, which includes you, for his service to his country! God bless you all!

    I am so glad to hear they are both coming home. I have a son stationed in Japan. We rarely see him. He has been there almost 5 years and loves it there. My DD and I went at Christmas time to visit and for his wedding. He married a wonderful Japanese girl. We miss them so.

    Hi ChrisB: So happy for you and your family for being able to all be together in one state again. I'm sure it's not a feeling any of us can imagine until we've gone through the same thing. Thanks to your son for the protection he's given us all. Seeing your new grand baby in person has to be the cherry on the cake. Thanks to all!

    God bless your son for his service. I have a nephew that is back in Kileen from Afghanistan and I'm very proud of him as well as all the troops serving our country. Glad he is home and safe.

    Please say Thank You to your son who's coming home from Afghanistan! Ours is heading there in just a couple weeks. God bless him for putting his country first. It's so wonderful that you'll have your sons and that new grandbaby nearby real soon!
