After a week of schedule changes and delays, we finally welcomed home our oldest son, Shane, from his tour of duty in Afghanistan. He had been stationed there for a year with the Army's 10th Mountain Division. He had a good tour and shared with us some of his experiences of the Afghan culture, the food, village life, etc. As you can well imagine, this mom is very glad to have her son back on American soil. He is pictured here with his girl, Mackenzie.
