Freedom Friday

I just love these guys/gals. I think they are fantastic and true Americans. They get "it". I love that they come out from all corners of this great country to escort our finest to their final duty station. Did you also know they escort returning vets when they get to their hometowns too? My mother-in-law is very active in the VFW Post in AZ where my hubs is from, when we went home last December we were getting ready to head out to the VFW for a Welcome Home dinner they planned for my hubs. We were all at my MIL's house and like any family trying to move a large group it was taking FOREVER..and then we heard it..the sound of thunder and low and behold we went outside and there they were..The Patriot Guard. Their were tons of them..and they came to welcome my hubs home too. It was fantastic. I had only ever seen them at funerals and I would always make a point to thank them for being there but this time it was a happy occasion so it was extra special seeing them.
What I love most about The Patriot Guard is that a lot of them are Vets themselves, some from Vietnam that never had a proper "welcome home" themselves and they are determined to make sure their brothers and sisters in arms get a proper welcome home. So long story short;
