Thanks for your service.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on May 10th, 2008

I was in San Antonio last weekend with Beth, enjoying the beautiful weather and the River Walk. We stayed at a hotel just south of town and rode the Yellow Line into downtown and the River Walk so we could leave the car at the hotel.

We met a guy from the 10th Mountain Division riding the bus with his wife and daughter and got to talking. He was home for 18 days of R&R from Iraq and spending it with his family. His haircut gave him away and I asked if he was in the service so that’s how the conversation started.

As luck would have it we ran into him again several hours later heading back to the hotel and talked some more.

Afterward, Beth and I kept thinking of all he and his family were going through, particularly the separation (he was part of a 15 month deployment). In all that we had talked to them about, there wasn’t one complaint. They were both doing their duty and doing it with honor.

I spoke to a customer in Iraq today, in fact I woke him up with my call to tell him we were shipping his order. I have quite a few customers serving in Irag, heading to Iraq and returning from Iraq.

I just want to say how proud I am of you guys (and your families) and “thank you for your service.”

    My son serves in the Oregon National Guard and served in Iraq. The Oregon group was attached to the 1ST.Cav. I feel so proud of my son and all my other sons in his unit and now have part of the proud history of 1ST Cav. Ft. Hood Texas in our family. He has just been told they are going back in 2009. Here we all go again and yes these are hero and lets keep the families in prayer it is a tough deal for all of us. May God bless the troops and keep them safe and home soon.
