He was gone a total of 16 months - 12 in Mosul and 4 in Baghdad. He's in great shape and in very good spirits. His was the last flight in. I've met most of the other flights over the last week - and it's been wonderful to see our troops returning; but it has been hard to greet all of them and not have mine to hug. So last night was particularly sweet.

Charles was home for his two-week leave with me when our daughter, Charlie, was born last year. He returned to Iraq when she was 3 days old. She turns 1 next week. We were all concerned about how she would respond to him. She was initially very watchful toward him but, as soon as we were home, she was playing with him and letting him hold her.

My hubby is due home from Afghanistan in Feb/March. I'm nervous about how my son will react to him.

Aww, congrats! Welcome home!

We're in Alaska, too. We're at Ft. Rich though.

Haha, that sounded like I had something personally against you, to clarify, I just love seeing those men and women come home! Now, commence the honeymoon!
