    HURRAH! HURRAH!
    .....we'll give her a hearty welcome then,
    HURRAH! HURRAH!
    The town will cheer,
    the men will call,
    And Mother's tears
    will surely fall
    And we'll all be glad when Melly comes marching home!:flag:

    She'll be back in the States in early August, then fly out here September 4th for a week's visit. She E-mailed me a copy of the paperless airline ticket she bought yesterday. I'm so excited, I can hardly stop shaking..........it's been a year and a half since I last hugged my little girl and held my grandson. For once, I WANT time to fly by---I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

    That's good news. I don't know about you but the older I get the quicker time seems to fly. She'll be home before you know it. I have such a deep respect for our service men and women and their families. When she gets home and the dust has settled, I would really like to know if she thinks we are making any progress over there. Keep us posted!

    Thanks, all.

    What she's been telling me all this time is NOT to watch the news---they don't tell the real story of what's going on over there. She has personally lost a grand total of ONE friend during her deployment, and that was an NCO who was killed in a stupid car wreck. Granted, she's in a comparatively "safe" environment, being an air traffic controller, but she always says "Mom, I just go to work every day like I did at Ft. Campbell, the only difference is that I have to wear all my gear." I know she really can't tell me all of what's happening, but her attitude has been positive throughout, and I'm seriously proud of her!!
