Military Homecomings

  • Thanksgiving is time to remember homecomings. Ten years ago this week I came home safely from a military deployment to Iraq. Three years ago this week our oldest son also came home safely from his tour in Iraq with the Army. Last year our second son came home safely from Afghanistan with the Marines. Our third son graduates next week from basic training with the Air Force.

    With all the important and busy parts of life, I’m grateful Thanksgiving helps me remember what it’s like to come home.

    Join me in remembering those who didn't make it home, and those still deployed
