Welcome home a hero

Image hosting by Photobucket
I saw a story on the news this morning about this wonderful program from DFW airport. Check you local airport to see if this opportunity is available in your area.

"Every day, more than 100 soldiers come through DFW Airport on their way home for two weeks of much-anticipated rest and recuperation (R&R). Under the R&R program, American servicemen and women receive these brief vacations from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. DFW Airport welcomes home these members of the armed forces as they return from duty. One R&R flight lands every day at DFW, and this warm welcome home starts their two weeks of R&R on a high note. DFW has assisted thousands of men and women since the R&R flights first started in November 2004. DFW would like anyone who wants to show these soldiers how much their commitment means to the North Texas community to participate. . ."
