Welcome home, and thank you for protecting the freedom we all enjoy. Don't ever let anyone tell you that America is not supporting the troops, we are behind you 100%. I spent 3 of the 4 years I was in the Air Force away for Christmas, so I know how grateful you are to be home. Enjoy your holidays, you have earned it.

WELCOME HOME SOLDIERS!!!!!!!!!! Congrads on the birth of your son. Our Christmas present in 2005 was my brother returning home from Iraq. It was the best Christmas any of us ever had. We know what the family has to go through with a loved one gone, especially during the holidays. God bless all of you and we pray for all our soldiers to return home safe, soon. Thank you for all you do for our country. Our soldiers and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you, Lord God, for keeping these soldiers alive through the meat-grinder we call Iraq.

Our 5-year old troop-withdrawal plan continues to work well in reducing the number of troops fighting in the combat zones......it brings them home IN A BOX...ONE AT A TIME !!

I support our REMAINING troops and wish them a safe return to their families.

Wow, thanks Uncle Ned. I appreciate that visual, not that I need you to remind me of my every day fear of the possibility of my brother coming home in a box. At least he would die an honorable death. Will you?
