Jeff arrived safely in San Angelo, Texas last night.
I have to thank y'all in Texas that gave him a warm welcome.
But first some photo's taken by my favorite photographer
Dorothy, mother of Newbaby 2010, ver 4.0
With the ladies at the airport.
This was before the tears hit (obviously).
Now, the story- I'll keep it short as an appointment awaits.
While traveling in uniform, the reception has not always been warm.
He and his fellow soldiers have been pushed around (literally)
and have been the recipients of really rude comments.
Nothing different on this trip.
He had 2 layovers, the first was in one of our favorite places
(the boys were born there).
Rude comments by many people.
Things changed when he boarded the plane to Dallas.
People kept thanking him for his service to our country.
He tried to buy a sandwich on the plane and the flight attendant
said it was on her.
When he landed in San Angelo, an older woman
came up to thank him.
She shook his hand and placed something in it.
She then walked away very quickly.
When he looked, she had placed $40.00
in his hand.
So, there are Angels in Texas and Jeff has met many of them.
This proud Army mom would like to thank Texas for the
