C’mon Home!

Last full U.S. combat brigade leaves Iraq

IRAQ-KUWAIT BORDER — The last U.S. combat troops crossed the border into Kuwait on Thursday morning, bringing to a close the active combat phase of a 7½-year war that overthrew the dictatorial regime of Saddam Hussein, forever defined the presidency of George W. Bush and left more than 4,400 American service members and tens of thousands of Iraqis dead. 

Welcome back home! 18 to 21 year-olds ready to start their lives…Moms and Dads whose kids are missing them…families and friends who are glad you are still alive….c’mon home!!  Thank you for your service.  WE ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOU BACK HOME! 

To those who lost loved ones or suffered debilitating injuries…I’m sorry we didn’t leave earlier.  Thank you for your service. 

For all those returning, who have been physically or mentally hurt, I hope your efforst aren’t forgotten like the efforts of the 9/11 first-responders.—9-11-responders-bill
