DON'T LET SUPPORT FOR OUR TROOPS FALTER!
Support Our Troops!! America is still at war, and our troops are still out there sacrificing. Do not lose sight of that fact because of a busy life, paying attention to politics, the stock market, or the latest celebrity scandal. While each one of us struggles to deal with the issues that are important to us, it's imperative that we don't lose sight of the issues that should be important to all of us - supporting our troops.

World War II Vets Receive Heroes Welcome Home After Honor Flights
Two more Honor Flights flew 200 Kansas World War II to Washinton DC on October 4th and 6th! See photos from the Heroes Welcome Home at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport.
We are very proud and relieved parents. Our son Jason (Capt. with the 333rd Fighter Wing, Seymour Johnson AFB) completed his mission in Afghanistan and returned home. Thank you to everyone who kept us going over the months he was gone. I realize now what every military mom goes through.
It's hell! But the pride in our men and women overshadows anything that we might feel. I cried when he left and I cried just as hard when he returned home. God Bless Every Single Servicemember!
