Welcome Home Soldiers

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 11:01 am

This morning I drove out to DFW Airport to welcome some of our soldiers home from Iraq for two weeks of R&R. I don’t believe that this war is worth the cost, but I do believe in the men & women that are fighting. They are following their own path, and I am here to support them. Awhile back, I stumbled across the blog of a soldier currently in Iraq. He has some interesting thoughts and ideas. Again, not ones that I am particularly in agreement with on all levels, but he is willing to debate and consider the thoughts of anyone who cares to post. He’s on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, but if you take the time to read his archives (at least his original posts…the comments sections can be quite lengthy), you’ll get a good idea of what some of the soldiers are going through. For the men and women that arrived home today, I shook their hands, hugged them, welcomed them home, and hopefully showed them that they are appreciated. They are indeed.

  1. That is so awesome! I would have been just a blubbering mess! Are there many people that just “show up” eventhough they don’t specifically know anyone?? Wow! Those soldiers have got to feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

  2. Our soldiers certainly deserve our support even if we don’t necessarily support the war. Great of you to make the effort to show!

  5. Bet they were glad to see welcome civie faces, I’m sure you did the power of good for them. I expect alot of the soldiers feel as we did do,that it’s a terrible waste of life for all involved in this war and struggle to see why they have to be involved.
