I have been thinking about this deployment especially since it is such a huge one. My son had volunteered but then couldn't go because of a medical issue. I realize that the ceremonies are this weekend. I wish each and every soldier a safe return.

Outstanding!!! Keep your eyes open and constantly scanning, be safe. My wife is in Afghanistan on her 2nd tour. My son in Iraq on his 2nd tour. My daughter is in Korea with the Air Force. I retired from the Army in 2000, after 20 years.
