So honored to have been part of the homecoming ceremonies at Fort Campbell (KY) yesterday. My son was among 190 soldiers returning from a year in the mountains of Afghanistan which really heated up on their watch.
Most of the guys on this flight were from the another group of the 101st Airborne Division, but my son was one of the four who came back from Able Company (Currahee!) a few days before the rest of his colleagues will return.
There is a touching video on the local Fox affilliate and their camera-man caught our family's Kodak moment on video, too.
I want to thank all the wonderful blog and twitter readers/friends who have sent their support and well-wishes for my son's safe return, and that of his fellow soldiers. I can't tell you how much that has meant to me, to his wife and our whole family over the past year. It is, indeed, a lot easier for us all to breathe now!
And here's to keeping all the remaining military men and women in our thoughts and prayers until every single one comes home!
