  1. My son-in-law was among those who returned July 4. His wife (my daughter) and his parents flew from NC to see him come home. We are so grateful that he and his comrades-in-arms are home after 15 long months. Humble also for the ultimate sacrifice made by five soldiers and their loved ones. We are all so proud. ROCK HARD!

    • A million thanks and a lifetime of gratitude to your son in law for his service! Welcome home!
