Hello All!
I've been a member here since 2004 but remained relatively quiet here...until recently.
I was active on another messageboard though. LOL!
At any rate, I just had to share my great news with you!
I got an e-mail yesterday from my son, that he's on his way home from Iraq!!
The waiting and worrying has been awful and stressful and just about drove me crazy
but the nightmare is OVER...for him and 4400 other soldiers!
He is out of the military as soon as they release him, which should be April 26th!
I'm soooo relieved and he is just ecstatic!! :cry:
That's it! That's all I wanted to say!! LOL!
His company, from Illinois, was attached to the 48th brigade and they're all coming home!!

:woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:

Baghdad, Iraq

The day that Charlie Company soldiers had dreamed about since Day 1
of the deployment arrived Monday. Roughly half of the Gainesville-based
infantry company boarded buses at Camp Libertys Pad 14 for Baghdads
airport. It was the first step in a long journey home.

Remaining soldiers of Company C, 1st Battalion, 121st Infantry Regiment
will follow later Monday and Tuesday to Kuwait, from, where they will
board a plane back to Hunter Airfield near Savannah.

They are part of the 4,400 soldiers in the Georgia Army National Guards
48th Brigade Combat Team, which is winding down its one-year mission in
Iraq. Most of the brigade is expected home by mid-May.

Amid hazy morning skies in the Iraqi capital, soldiers loaded their
rucksacks onto baggage trucks and picked up demobilization paperwork
before heading to the airport.
