If anyone finds this over here! He is now out of Iraq and in Fort Polk,LA,and happy to be home,has 6 months left in the army then finishing his medical schooling to be a doctor,and John(captain) if you are reading this he never did get that flag! LOL!
Glad to hear that Casey is home and safe. Karen and I greet troop planes that pass through our local airport and we did greet some on their way to Ft Polk. I hope, if he was one of the troops we greeted, that he enjoyed his visit with us. We have greeted about 20,000 troops in the past 2 years and it is an absolute pleasure. The only way we miss one is when we are out of town. Say "Hi" to him for us and tell him we are glad he is home.
