    I am so very excited, my son who just finished his tour in Afghanistan has arrived safely back in the United States. I am so proud of him and all that serve. I will continue to pray for those of you that have soldiers in your lives that are serving.

    Thank him for us! What a blessing he is safe!
    My brother did 2 tours in Baghdad and Saudi a few years back. Safely in US for awhile now and will not be going overseas again due to an injury. All is good!
    Thank you also for sharing your son for the freedoms of all!

    I am also very pleased and thankful your son is home safe and sound. We owe so much to the dedicated men and women that have served for our freedom. My son also served in Desert Storm and it was a very difficult time for me, but I was very fortunate, he came home safe and sound. That was many years ago now.

    My husband served in Desert Storm. It was very scary for my children at the time My 3 1/2 yo (at the time) was convinced her dad was dead and up in heaven. My 4 kids were 2 - 9 at the time. So glad he came home safe as well!!!

    I sure understand. Im happy he is home. My son was in the Navy and went to Baraig (wrong spelling) but I was so happy when he came back to the states too. Thank him for fighting for us.
