Scott's Home!!!

My brother Scott is home from his 13 months in Iraq! My parents went to the base to meet him, but it was too far away for me to go. Dad took pictures and Scott called me from my mom's phone. I promptly got off the phone and cried. Praise the Lord for keeping him during this time.

The plane coming in
Troops beginning to deboard
Here comes Scott!!!
Everyone came in the hanger and the troops marched in in formation before they could greet their families
Scott's just to the left of the guy with the red jacket
Here is one happy mama with her baby home

Although I do not know your family, the photo of your Mom with her son...ok, I lost it!!! Crying like a baby down here in AsunciĆ³n!

How absolutely wonderful! And for your folks to be able to watch him come off the plane! I can't imagine how wonderful it must feel for your parents to have their son home, but I can truly understand the excitement and relief of having all those brave men back on US soil! I hope you'll have the chance to see Scott soon and give him a giant hug! I'm getting a little choked up thinking about the excitement we experience when Mike returned last time, and in anticipation of his return in a few months! I am so full of joy for Scott and your family! Praise God for his safe return!

What amazing news! Praise God for his safe return. And I will be thinking of him as he begins the process of readjustment.
