I posted this on Ravelry but want to share here too. My grandson just got back from a tour of duty in Iraq. He flew into Huston Airport from Germany and there was a welcoming group of people from the Dallas area to greet the plane. The soldiers also got a special welcome from the airport Fire Dept. They showered the plane with water from their fire hoses. Congratulations to the people of Dallas Texas your tribute was very much appreciated.

Glad your grandson is home safely! Thank him for his service,from another Vet.

Sounds like a 'WOW' reception from the airport FD.

Yes about the "shower" that is usually reserved for an airline captain when he comes in with his last flight before retiring.

I'm so glad your grandson got home safe. My own son has been over twice. I am so grateful for their service.

I am so glad that your grandson is home safe. There is no other feeling in the world like seeing them step off that plane.

He had to go directly to his post but today he will be flying home for a visit. We are all very excited.
