Welcome Home Soldiers

Tuesday, August 09, 2005

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.

  • 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!

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

  • 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.

  • I don't agree with the war either, but I really support our troops.
