thank you Josh

Josh came home yesterday and the first thing he said was "This is the last time you will see me in my uniform." He signed up with the Oregon National Guard 6 years ago and just finished his last weekend of work with them. The Guard has taken Josh all over, including a tour in Iraq a few years back. He has experienced so much and been so many places including Mongolia, Ireland, Kuwait, and New Orleans (Katrina relief) just to name a few. It is a selfless act to serve our country and I am so proud of him for it. Be proud of our soldiers and thank them when you can! Thanks Josh!!

I don't usually post comments on blogs unless I REALLY feel motivated and I was more than motivated this time. With an uncle and a cousin in the NG, I feel strongly about our military. I know how much it takes and I just want to say thank you for all that you do.

You give us the right to everything we hold near and dear to our hearts and I thank you for that. I thank you for sacrificing all that you have so my son can grow up in a better world. Thank you.

Congrats you two! Josh, thanks for all of your sacrifices over the past 6 years...and thanks Maggie for being his support through it all. You two give Mike and I strength to know that we can do it for the next 3 1/2 years out until he wears his uniform for the last time. We love you guys!
