Saw this banner hanging on a neighborhood house. The emblem on the banner is the USMC anchor so I assumed the person coming home was a Marine. I imagined for a moment how great it would be to be welcoming my brother home from Afghanistan. Anytime he gets to come home on leave is great, but when he's coming back from a deployment it's extra special. I regret the fact that we can never actually be there in person to welcome them off the plane, but living in the center of the continental us when he has either been on the West of East coast in not conducive to those kind of things.
I'd like to take a chance to welcome all those wandering soldiers home and for those still abroad, thank you and godspeed home.
