Cool One of the proudest days ever

I'm putting this here, because regardless of your political stance I want everyone to see what happened here today. I was honored to help coordinate/participate in the welcome home ceremony for one of our units that deployed to Iraq. They were extended, being deployed for almost 500 days.

I was there when the buses pulled up, and the family members rushed them, the wives jumping into their husband's arms, it was really emotional. Men seeing babies for the first time, tears flowing, it was amazing

We had a ceremony for them, 3 generals, state representatives and others all in attendance. I was the MC, had to keep things on track with my "radio voice."

Here are a few pics:

The beginning of the ceremony. I'm behind the podium on stage, the returning Soldiers are on the floor.

The BEST part, some of the family member shots

Thanks guys, again it's not THEIR choice of whether to go or not, they set their political differences aside when they signed on the line.... They just went out and did a job, because that is what they do.

Having been there and done that in 2003, I can tell you that there is no feeling like coming home from that. You are in your home, but it doesn't feel like your home. You are glad to be home, but in a weird way you miss being over there.....

that's awesome. Yup, political BS aside they don't make those calls. They do as they are told. Glad those guys made it home and rip to anyone who didn't

I'm sure there are a lot of happy families in that area...

Thanks for the pics Phil. I can remember being young and my dad coming home and seeing him for the first time in over a year. I can only imagine how much more gratifying it would be in wartime.

/salute to all those who made it home, and to the ones who didn't.
