As you probably remember (Or may not know, if you are a new reader), Our Man in Green just got back in September from Irak. He was gone many months (18 total, spending 12 in Irak). He's a hero to us! Their unit is a great bunch of guys who know their job very well and work really great together. The unit had over 7000 flight hours while on their tour. The entire unit came home and suffered no major injuries.
Our mom went to a "Freedom Salute" last night for the Man in Green. The highup beans in the Iowa National Guard came to thank the unit. Mom and the Little Monkey got to go on stage and have their picture taken too. It was a way to say thank you to the families of the soldiers as well.
It's important to remember our Veterans! And remember the sacrafices not only the soldiers make, but their families as well.
We salute our Veterans! Happy Veteran's Day Man in Green! Happy Veteran's Day Dragonheart's Dad! Happy Veteran's Day to ALL veterans!
