PRINCSSIS SPEAKS...you may listen

Anyone who knows me and my family will know that I am "Princess Sister" to my three younger brothers. I'm a fairly quiet woman, so when I have something to say, I expect to be heard. I mean no disrespect or place myself on any kind of pedestal. My brothers gave me this name, so I honor them by using it.

TANK IS COMING HOME!

Tank has been, for the last 18 months, serving in the Army National Guard deployment to Iraq. He started the deployment in the states but away from home in training. He has been in Iraq for the last year. HE IS NOW BACK ON US SOIL! He called GranNee this morning to say he is in Georgia! YIPPEE! In just a few days, he'll be back home in our arms! I can't wait to see him! We are all soooooo proud of his dedication and courage.

I know the Lord has watched over him and kept Tank safe. Better yet, Tank knows it, too! Thank you, Lord for your protection!!

I'm trying to think of something to do to welcome him home. There is a "welcome home" committee with the National Guard family support group. They have planned a celebration to welcome the troops home. They will be asking the public to line the streets along the route the troops will take from the airport to the armory. They have made and placed over 1600 yellow ribbons along the route. Fire engines will be hoisting large flags in the air and fire personnel will be saluting the troops along the route. I wish I could be a bird to see the whole thing. I want to see what the soldiers see as they come home. You see, we (family) will all be waiting at the armory for their arrival. I hope they come home to a warm welcome from the community!

THANK YOU, TANK!
