I thought a new way to share my Afghanistan experience would be to see some of the responses I received from different letters I sent home. In this first addition. I am going to pick responses from when I sent the letter that I was finally home. I made it back to the United States on 1 November 2010. I left for my training on 6 November 2009. I was almost gone for a full year. I was happy to be back in New Mexico even though so much had changed in the year I was gone.
I’m glad to see you coming home safely. Thank you for going and serving. I know it wasn’t easy being separated from your husband. Enjoy getting to know each other again, and we look forward to seeing what God has for both of you in the future.
Yippee, you are home!!
Thank you for your service for our freedom AND for getting home safely. Your description of what happened in July was probably adrenaline pumping experience for you. Glad you ALL came through it unscathed.
We are so happy you are back in the States safely. Even though I didn’t write to you I did pray for you a lot.
I have been following your notes, and forwarding them to family and a friend. We have been praying for you and so thankful to God for getting you home.
So glad you made it home safely!!
I’m so happy you are safely home.
Welcome back home to the good old US. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and pictures with us. I’ve been passing them on to the friends. It’s so amazing to see you in full gear and doing what your were doing!
Being deployed was difficult, but all the care packages and letters from family and friends made it not so hard. I am thankful for everyone who took the time to send me a package, write me a note and pray for me while I was gone. I often get told thank you for my service, but I don’t think the people left behind know how important they are to the ones out serving.
~If you are interested in sending someone overseas a care package comment below and I will get you contact information of someone stationed overseas. ~
