    Grandson Home

    My Grandson has returned from Afghanistan all in one piece, thank God. This picture was taken while we were standing inside a hangar waiting for the guys to unload the bus that brought them from the airport to the Armed Forces building. Not a very good picture. I had to resize it and I am still a novice at getting it right. Sorry.

    Good news! I know that takes a load off your mind.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Thanks everyone. Yes, we were all happy to have him back home safely. One man in his outfit did not make it back alive and two were critically injured.

    When the bus came from the airport to the Armed Forces Center, they had a police escort. One police car in front of the bus and one behind with sirens blazing. The fire truck in the picture below had a U.S. flag attached to the ladder and had the flag hanging over the street. They also had their siren and horn blaring. I am told that many cities do this for their returning Vets. It was actually an emotional moment that choked me for just a few seconds.

    Great Picture Oldman, yes I can imagine how emotional you would have felt to see how rightly respected your grandson and his company were on their return.

    Please thank him for his service, from us.. without those brave guys..and gals ( including many in my own family).. we wouldn't be having an easier life than our parents...

    You too Ken, the same for your grandson too..
