Next time you see one of the troops, say "Thank You."

Have you ever seen a soldier, seaman, airman, or marine in uniform and wanted to say "Thank you"...but you couldn't because you were too far away, or you weren't able to stop and say the words? Here's a way to communicate "Thanks for your service!" without saying a word.

(Thanks to my sis, a proud Navy mom.)

So close to being home

There is sad news from Army Battalion 2-16 this week. Two soldiers, so close to coming home, were killed: Spc. Durrell L. Bennett, 22, of Spanaway, Wash., and Pfc. Patrick J. Miller, 23, of New Port Richey, Fla.

Bennet and Miller would have returned to Kansas in April with the rest of the 2-16.

May both soldiers rest in peace in the loving arms of their creator. God grant solace to their families.
