    We just got the word tonight that my sons unit will be back in Toledo this weekend. He is in Texas now Doing whatever they do for a few days then it's home for good I hope. It is a load off his mother's and my mind. You better keep your daughters at home and hide your beer I would say these young people will be ready to let go. To anyone who has served or has somebody close who has Thank You! wally

    What an awesome Christmas present for you and the entire family. Tell him thank you for his service. I love to hear when folks make it home for the holidays from the military. Though I do not know him please tell him that I am proud of him and from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for protecting our freedom. Jake
     
  11. I echo what everyone else has said. Thanks to your son for his service and congratulations to your family for getting a chance to enjoy the holidays together again. My boys are not old enough to be in that situation but I can only imagine the joy and excitement you guys must be feeling.
     
  12. I agree with everyone else as well. Glad to see that he's coming home. Tell him thanks and we are proud of him.

    Good deal... My Son got back from Iraq a month or so ago. It's an amazing feeling when you actually get to hug them in person again.

    Tell your son thank you and thank you, his family, for your sacrifice too. Sometimes we forget what the mothers and fathers and other family members are going through while their loved ones are in harms way.

    Merry Christmas!
     
  18. You get your son for Christmas and I lose my brother. :( I guess that's how it goes in the military. My brother is in route to the sandbox as we speak. Thanks to your son for his service and making it a better place for the troops that are replacing him over there.
