Welcome Home, Soldier!

Our Boy Scout troop did something very cool today. One of our committee members has been in Iraq with the Air Force for 4 months and his unit, among others, came back home today. Since we have the day off from school (some teacher conference), we decided to greet the troops at the airport upon their arrival. It's one of the coolest things I've participated in.

Here they are coming down from the gate. The troops seemed so appreciative to see us there and most all of them stood in line to shake all the boys' hands.

There were so many! Over 100.

This is our troop members that attended with our own soldier on the left.

Welcome home, gentlemen and ladies. Thanks for serving our country!
