YES , Praise God !! The best gift a parent can have, a son home safely from war.I know, our son came home safe from 2 tours of duty in Iraq as a tank commander for the U.S.M.C.There are not words enough to express the thankfulness of heart.

Donna,
Oh how excited I know you must have been to actually give that boy of your hugs and kisses!!! I'm so happy that you have him home and just in time for Christmas!!! Please thank him from my family and I....I too will be celebrating christmas with my son for the second time this year. We celebrated Christmas in July this past july for the Christmas we missed with him in 2009 while he was in Iraq and can't wait to celebrate with him this year!

Hugs to you and I too like Linda....my eyes are leaking because I know exactly what you are feeling!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!
