Never Again Will One Generation of Veterans Abandon Another

A cousin just came back from Iraq.

Here's the story.

And here's a cool postscript from his wife, my cousin Nancy:

As a follow up to the story (and this will make more sense after you read the story), our doorbell rang this afternoon. There stood the head chef from Wegman's with a HUGE tray of sushi. I think every kind they make was on the tray. He said "Welcome Home, Sir, and Thank You from Wegman's."

I am filled with admiration for the Sgt., his family, and his brothers in arms.
I hate this war, but I respect the men and women doing their jobs. I await the day they can all come home and have their welcoming parties.

Incredible story and man, he for sure went the extra mile.

I read your post and thought the sushi was delivered to your house and thought what in the heck. Read it again and figured it out..dahh my slowbutt is acting up again I guess.
