My Husband, My Hero

The 463rd MP CO arrived home late last night after a 15-month tour in Baghdad, Iraq. We are thrilled beyond words, but exhausted! I had butterflies all day to the point that I had a stomach ache and was anxious as the projected where to buy zovirax tablets time of arrival changed throughout the day. DD, who’s bedtime is 7 PM, was such a sweet girl even though she was exhausted and woken up to welcome Daddy home. Just wanted to share the wonderful news with you!

    You have a brave husband and you are a strong woman! I am so glad to be American and have men that don't know me to defend the families of America! Let him know that we are so proud of our Military families. I don't know what I would do without hubby for a week, much less 15-months!! So glad he's home safe.
