Welcome home the Troops

ALL DAYS : planes arrive at 8:00am to DFW. This plane is a straight shot from Kuwait and will contain a large number of troops... as many as 250 per flight. They disperse to the entire country from here. There are 2 arrival destinations, Dallas and Atlanta. It is heartwarming. Jeannette and I have done this before. There is music playing, lots of hand clapping, plenty of hand shakes and genuine comments of appreciation. Most Troops are grateful of the salute to them upon their arrival. They work so hard and give so much that it is the least we can do.
