Again, thank you. What a joyous and heartwarming occasion it was to see that so many fellow Americans would give up their Saturday night to hold an American flag at an airport terminal, while cheering, simply to honor and welcome back home an American soldier from the combat zone (whom they had never met and did not personally know).
