Welcome home Uncle Aaron!
We welcomed home Aaron just in time for Thanksgiving. Aaron was serving as an Army medic in Iraq for the past year. We thank God that there are people like him who are willing to fight for our freedom.
We met him and his group at the old hanger bay at Sky Harbor Airport. It was really cool. They all marched in and Governor Nepolitano spoke & thanked them for their service. Then they were dismissed. It was amazing to see all the families there. I couldn't believe how many men & women had to leave behind their small children.
Hunter was only 2 weeks old the last time Aaron saw him. He has grown a ton since then! Hunter wore a little red onesie that read " My uncle, my soldier, my hero." We were all very happy to see him home safe and sound.
