Marines Return Home

Cheers, tears and hugs for our Troops!
Last night 2 buses filled with about 50 Marine Reservists arrived back from Afghanistan into Orlando. The Direct Support Motor Transport Company A11 (Alpha one one)  from the Military Reserve Center normally would have been gone for 6 months but ended up serving about 10 months. The "Welcome Home" crowd gathering at The Armed Forces Reserve Center in Orlando consisted of families of these heroes, as well as patriotic citizens, The Vietnam Brotherhood, and OS91 supporters and partners Mayor Scott Vandergrift of Ocoee, Chaplain Kathie DiCesare of the Nam Knights, Vickie DiGiovanni of Blue Star Moms and Cathy Haynes of Daughters of the American Revolution, who did so much to get word out about the last minute arrival of these Heroes.
Families held Welcome Home Banners

This wonderful Marine Littles, when handed a Psalm 91 card by Mary said,
"I prayed Psalm 91 when I was over there!"

First time this Marine sees his baby!

Our sentiments exactly: WELCOME HOME HEROES!
