Ah, I love those old Army pictures!Tell your
Father thank you for me and Welcome home from the Spencer family in Conover, NC! I have learned as a Blue Star Mother that the troops from Vietnam were not welcomed home when they came back!! Such a sad and embrassing part of our history. I have had the privilige of saying Welcome Home to several Vietnam vets that were my patients..I am honored to say that they welcome those words and you should have seen the sparkle in their eyes when hearing those words and then seeing those eyes fill up with tears!! It broke my heart. My son has finished his service in the Army and I am always humbled when I seeing people thanking him and welcoming him home!
God Bless our Soldiers and their families!
