Sheldon and 244 other soldiers plane landed at 10:15 am on Tuesday morning. It is such a relief and countless prayers have been answered. I cannot even begin to describe the amount of relief you feel when they are marching in and having the end of deployment ceremony.
Unless you have had a loved one deploy, you cannot not even imagine the worry and fear you live with for the entire time they are gone. You worry that you will miss a phone call. When the doorbell rings or a weird number is on your caller id, your heart just sinks.
I am so relieved and thankful that Sheldon and his entire batallion made it home safely. YAHOO!!!

Oh I am so happy for you guys. I am so happy they he is home and you can finally be together. I can not imagine what it must be like to have your husband be gone for so long. I have so many mixed emotions lately because my little brother joined the Marines. He will leave in November to go to boot camp and then I am sure he will go over there. I am so nervous and scared. I don't even know what to expect. I am glad Sheldon made it home ok and all is well.

That is so great that Sheldon made it home! I think I take for granted the freedoms that we have and forget about the men and women who are serving our country. So thank you Sheldon for your service! I appreciate it and I'm glad you made it home! You have a special woman and I'm sure you know that!!!!!
