Coming Home!

I know I have made mention of Andy before...he is part of the Marines Lima Company that had been in Iraq since January. His particular company had many deaths (48 in all) and we were scared a few times that he wouldn't make it back alive (you can read about it here, here, and here). Well, he is now back in the US!!! (thanks again everyone for your prayers and well wishes for him!) Last night 350 of his battalion (with 900 reservists in all) arrived in Camp LeJeune in North Carolina! They will then spend about 5 days in what they call a transition period to get them used to being back in the good ol' US of A. Then Andy will be coming back home to us here in Columbus, Ohio in the middle of next week! I can't wait to see him! His family is planning a welcome home party for him at their church and all I want to do is give Andy a big hug and to thank him. I am sooo proud of what he has done for our country!!!

Life is grand with Andy home!!!
