Desire' is finally HOME!The Trip, The Ceremony

It's time to go! Kevin's just a little excited

The kids are loaded up and ready to go

And we are off

Some of us didn't make it too far

And some of us were so excited, we just passed out

It was a long ride

Kevin knows this will be the last time he will get to drive Desire's truck

On the road

Look what we found along the way

Talladega!

Our Heros!

We made it to the base, Ft. McClellan

The decorations were great!

Then we start the long wait

Very long wait.....

The boy was all decked out for his sister's home coming

We wait

And wait......

And wait.....

And wait.......

And practice waving the flag....

The BUS!!
Being escorted in by the Patriot Guard Riders!


Patriot Guard Riders

Showing their support

Finally! We get to hug her

Isaac finally gets to hold his Mama!

Bella is a little more cautious

She's second in line as the came in

Thanking God for their safe return
Remembering those who still fight.

The speaches

More speaches


Thank you Partriot Guard Riders!

It was so good to see her smilin' face in person again.

Yes, she's short

The Salute

The Medals

Four Medals for her service in Iraq

I know your whole family must be so proud that Desire is home. I'm so proud for you all. And tell her, for me, that we can never thank her enough for what she has done for our country.
