View Full Version : Airman Returns

2006-05-10, 18:31
I've never started a thread here but we just had to tell everyone that our little baby boy, Sgt US Airforce...returned home today from the Middle East from his 2nd tour and all in one piece. :elefant: Yeah, I know most of you are chuckling since generally Airforce personnel only risk twisted ankles sprinting for the chow line...but parents worry anyway.

Please tell him we appreciate his service. And your sacrifice for sending your son, too.

Not all airmen have it so safe, this war has no lines, I spent several weeks last year hanging around Bagdhad Int. airport last year and rockets and mortars were a regular occurence there. The flyboys kept their body armor handy. Congrats on his safe return.

I also say thanks. I never did serve, wish I had. Thank you again.

I served as well, but stateside only. 2 years Naval Regional Medical Center San Diego, Ca. ( I know, I know; CREAMPUFF DUTY )
Glad he's home and safe.
Best regards and ALL due respect for your son, :adore:

Congrats on getting your son home safely. It's a crazy world, out there!

Thanks guys...you can't imagine how much we appreciate the response. I'm sure there will be tears (from his mother of course) when he gets his 30 days leave and finally arrives here. His wife and kids are probably pretty happy also :rolleyes:

no one's really safe these days... so don't dismiss his sacrifice (but keep telling his mom he's safe... it's ok to lie about stuff like that to keep mom's from worrying.)

congrats on his safe return, and thanks for supporting his decision to serve...

Congratulations! It is nice to hear about the guys getting home safely. Hopefully we can do more of that in the near future.

Thanks again everyone...Sarg, I am most honored to get a response from you...hope you are well. Found your other post amusing...true, but amusing. I wanted you to know that my 8 year old granddaughter ALWAYS includes the 'soldiers in the war' in her prayers every night.

From an old Airmen tell him thanks for his service. Glad he made it back safely.

USAF did some great work today. You're rightly proud that your boy was over there. :congrats: :congrats:

Good to hear good news. :)

Also, never underestimate the various dangers associated with chow lines.

Lt.Schueller, Welcome to HikingHQ. I'd like to ask you to please be respectful of the other service people here. My husband (SGT Rock) and I run this site. Thank you.

Also I do hope that you've made a typo on your birthdate and they aren't letting 14 year olds into the Air Force now. :) LOL You might want to verify that.

I second this. Always nice when we comeback with all my fingers and toes.

Hrm - first I was just irritated, but hawking your company on a thread about military members serving in Iraq is pretty low-class.

JMO, of course.

I second your oppinion Jeff. Its always a good day when one comes home. Rock, the comment about the whiskey......Spoken like a true calvaryman. (19D30D3 - 1993 to 2000)

Well, he posted 3 messages at 2:30, 2:34 and 2:37, and his last activity was at 2:39. I don't think we'll ever see him again. But I, for one, didn't click on his link and never plan to, just for this reason. That's about the best we can do against spammers, except for the ones the mods think need to be removed.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming - anyone else expecting a loved one's return any time soon?

My best friend is at live fire training right now (that's a big deal for us AF types!)...should be in place by mid-Sept.
