Just wanted to let everyone know that Brandon came back to Ft. Sill yesterday SAFE & SOUND!!! He will be there until Tuesday, then they will bus them to Ozark, AR where after the ceremony, they will be released for good. Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes. He is so glad to be home. And I'm definitely relieved.
Hey, great news. I live just south of Ozark, in Paris. Some of our guard troop just left for training then on to Iraq. Second trip for several of them. I am very glad to hear he is safe and sound. Please let him know that this Arky thanks him for his service.
I will definitely tell him. He will probably be moving to Ozark as his gf lives there. Maybe we can have an impromptu GTG when I go and visit him. Several of his comrades are wanting to see "Red" (the '78) anyway. I'll let you know when I'm headed that way.
That's great news and a true blessing. My brother in law has lost some dear friends over there. It's good to hear that Brandon is home safe. And from one military vet to another, I appreciate his service and pride in America too.
Yea, Stan. He'll be back around sooner or later. We're supposed to give them time to settle back into "normal" life. Maybe he'll come back sooner if he knows we're having a GTG for him. I'll let you know when he is available and we'll make plans.
They lost 3 out of their battalion, 2 over there and one drowned while they were on leave in July. His room mate that lost his hand was there when they came back Tues. so I got to meet him. Still has a little bit of therapy to go, but he seems to be doing real good.
GREAT NEWS ABOUT BRANDON. Sorry about being so long on not knowing. I haven't been online here in a long time. Hey, you know a GTG would be great. I would surely bring "THE TRUCK" if that would help bring him back around here for a welcome home cookout or something. What do you all think about some Nitros and Green led purge lights with green LED ground lights? I'm just thinking what's next for the truck. We are getting ready for our annual pilgrimage to Batesville, AR for Mark Martins' weekend. Hope to see you all soon. LETS GET TOGETHER SOON!!!!!!
