Welcome Home Troops

19 Aug

I stopped short at the Continental arrivals gate in Hartford’s Tom Bradley airport Tuesday morning when I saw a giant Welcome Home Our Troops sign, hanging close to the baggage claim. My sister kept walking, saying she’d seen it in many airports before, but I stood there for a few extra seconds, struck by the enormity of the sign’s implication. Maybe it’s because just last week a rocket-propelled grenade brought down a US Chinook in Afghanistan, and with it, 30 US special team forces soldiers. With the new book, SEAL TEAM 6, out, I can just start to see a piece what these men underwent to serve, not to mention them as upstanding people, leaving spouses, children and family behind. It was good to see that sign, and know there are soldiers who come home, safely. Welcome home.
