Welcome home, Soldier. It's good to have you back. Thank you for all of your posts. It helped so often to read an update from you especially on the days I wasn't hearing anything from the 278th soldier in my family. I am proud of each one of you for what you accomplished. You had an extraordinary record there. Thank you, most of all, for serving for each one of us. You are all heroes.


Welcome home, Lieutenant!


Hey, welcome back. Glad you returned safe and sound. My feeling about the war notwithstanding, I thank you for your service to our country.

Welcome home and thanks.

Enjoy the pleasures of home and family. Accept the accolades that both friends and strangers will offer you. You've earned them.

And let everything else roll off your back. You're home.

Blessings ...


Yes! So glad that you are home safe and sound. Hope that you have a fabulous re-introduction to your life at HOME! Please keep us (blogging world) updated if we need to be praying for specific future soldiers or you have prayer requests. Again, thank you for your service.

God bless you on your safe return. I have read your blog many, many times seeing as that my own son was also in Iraq and is a poor communicator. You have kept me informed and I am grateful. My son is now also back in the states and it's wonderful to be able to just pick up the phone and talk to him. Hope your family feels the same. Good luck to you and thanks for a job well done. God be with you. Sandi
