    He's Home!!!

    So thankful that my air force son is home after 3 years in Italy, Iraq and Afghanistan. I've never been so happy to drive to the airport in my life--broken wrist, broken ankle and all!

    I sure understand that! My son got home 2 weeks ago from a year in Korea. He has done 2 tours in Iraq, and 4 years in Germany, so this one wasn't so scarey, but it was great to get him home in time for Thanksgiving, his daughter's 3rd birthday next Saturday and Christmas. Sadly, they are then moving to Virginia--about 9 hours from us, instead of the 2 1/2 they are now at Ft. Knox. Oh well, I know how to get where they are taking my only grandchild--as many times as I can and still work full time.

    I'm very glad you son is home safely and in time for the holidays. Maybe all this will end soon and our children (that's what they are, no matter how old they get!) won't have to go to those places again!

    Tell your Son "thanks for guarding our country" for us. He has had a lot to do to keep us all safe. Have a good visit.

    I know completely how you feel! My daughter deployed to Iraq. Fortunately, as a critical care nurse, other than Iraq he duty station was Walter Reed. When she called me from Kuwait to say she was out of Iraq I felt such a weight off my shoulders.

    Our oldest Grandson was here for Thanksgiving. He had to report back today at Midnight. He is in the Army and with The Old Guard in D.C. He does ceremonies at the White House and Pentagon. He has served two tours in Iraq. We are just glad he is Stateside.

    Thank your Son for serving our wonderful country. Enjoy !!!

    Isn't it great to have them back home safe and sound? My son was in Germany for 2 years and was suppose to be home for Christmas. He ended up staying another year after things started getting hot in the middle east.

    Nice! Enjoy the time with him and be sure to thank him for his service. There are many who care and pray for "our" men daily. Glad he is home.
