Hero has a baby on the way!!!

I just wanted to drop a line to relay my thanks to you and all of the people who contributed to creating the latest set of Thanksgiving cards. As I am sure you are aware, the holidays are a very emotional time for those away from loved ones. For some, this is their first deployment and their first time they are away from all things familiar. Anything that can lessen this is truly appreciated by the Soldiers,Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and civilians. My wife and I are eagerly awaiting the arrival of our baby. My second child (we chose to wait to see if it was a boy or girl) will be born in approximately 2 weeks. I am lucky enough to have my R&R coincide with this and hopefully will be there for the birth. My wife's father, a retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant, will beflying in from New Hampshire so this will be a mini family reunion. My parents are currently retired in Thailand and are planning to visit when the deployment is over in March. Once again, thank you and the others for the cards, all of the well wishes, and your prayers. It is greatly appreciated by all of us here. These cards bring great joy and happiness to all our family members and friends back home. Take care.
