One last Atlanta observation

The Atlanta airport is a main pass through for our soldiers overseas, particularly those coming home on RR from Iraq. On Thursday, a small group arrived from overseas and was greeted with a rousing ovation from other passengers. There were also a lot of soldiers waiting to return to duty.

The thing that struck fellow travelers and myself was how young the soldiers are. I am fully aware most soldiers are late teens and early twenties, but it is not till you meet them that you remember how young that really is. Yet they are doing the hard job. There was an air of sadness over many of the soldiers and even an air of tiredness.

In all of this, it reminded me that we don’t thank our soldiers enough for what they do.

    The greatest thanks that we can give our soldiers is to bring them home.
