    I got to pick my daughter up at the airport tonight as she came home from a six-month deployment to Afghanistan!!! Who can top that as a birthday gift? Not to mention, she also had a beautiful hand-made Afghan rug made for me...she chose the patterns and colors. I'll take a picture soon and post it here, but I'm just so happy she is home safe!!!

    It is wonderful news that your daughter is safely home from Afghanistan. Please give her my heartfelt thanks for her service, and thank you for supporting her while she serves. We are free to do what we choose because of our soldiers. The Afghan rug is a wonderful gift. Please post a picture when you can.
