    And our Marine will be back on US soil. Thanks to all who have prayed and congratulated me. As can be imagined, won't sleep much tonight.

    Please continue to pray for all our young men and women in harm's way.

    bigdogtx, God Bless him and his brethren. What we're asking of our soldiers today is not right. The biggest shame is how many of our young people stateside don't have a clue what's going on or any appreciation for what we used to be.

    Glad he made it back Bigdog, is he flying into DFW?

    Our son went through DFW on each of his 4 deployments, it was good as we are only about a hour away and were able to meet and greet him, before he headed off to Alaska

    Son in law did 3. His brother did 4 and was badly hurt by an IED, but survived.

    We are lucky to have these young warriors performing this task under the conditions our politicians employ.

    Tell him "God Bless you" from my family.
