Today my friend Wendy welcomed her husband home from Iraq.  Almost four years ago, Wendy and I waited for the plane to descend from the clouds with our husbands on it in the rain at the Naval Air Station at Oceana in Virgina.  Today Wendy, another friend and some other wives are exhaling and hugging their husbands tightly as they welcome them home from deployment.  They let go of the anxiety they have carried with them throughout the deployment.

These folks aren’t just friends….they’re family.

Welcome Home, Danny and the Seabees of NMCB24. We’re proud of you and thank you for your service to our great Nation!
