    So glad that your son made it home. Such a blessing, hope that he gets to stay home for a while or a long time. You keep your fingers crossed and saying prayers and finally they are home. It is a very long war and I wish that it would get resolved so that our guys can come home.. Sonya

    ok, so i tried to post the picture last night and it took over an hour but i wasn t successful...but they are on the front page of the Boston Globe!!! (www.boston.com) thats my dd !!!:spin: She had said she wasnt going to run up to him, she was going to wait for his mother but when she saw him she ran up and jumped in his arms...she's only 5 feet tall and 110 lbs soaking wet and he is much bigger (6', at least 240) so it was sooo funny!! cant describe the feelings of pure joy!!

    Tell him thank you from a fellow vet and neighbor.....

    And welcome him home for me.

    I have a similar set of pics from when my dh and his squadron came home from Desert Storm, got it on video too. It was sooo cool;they flew in, in a 7 jet formation and taxi'd thru an archway of water made by our base fire dept fire trucks. His parents and sisters/brothers traveled nearly 1000 miles to be part of the amazing celebration. Got our pictures taken by a newspaper, too; his mother has em.

    Anyhow. Enough about me.... It's a day you will never, ever forget. So I totally relate to your excitement and joy. Enjoy this moment in time, you all earned it.
