This is my husband Josh with Santa. He was deployed to Iraq with the 384th MP BN out of Ft. Wayne, IN. The unit returned in May, so this will be his first Christmas since he's been home. This picture was taken at the unit Christmas party and I couldn't tell who was more excited to see Santa, our 3 children, or him!! He was the first to run up and hug Santa and was right in the middle of all the kids with a huge grin on his face as they sat and listened to Santa read them a Christmas story. The kids and I are SO happy to have him home with us this Christmas because deployments have caused him to miss so many special occasions. But we are also SO very proud of him and what he and so many other brave men and women have done and continue to do for this great country. I know there are many families missing a Soldier this Christmas and many Soldiers missing their families. My heart goes out to all of them and I wish each and every one a safe and speedy return. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and God Bless America!!!
Back from Iraq and ready for Christmas!
