Barb, Thanks for sharing the wonderful news. Can you hear me yelling good cheers from So. Cal. in American Samoa? I'm so happy.

Where will he be stationed? If he is in So. Cal please send him my way as I'd love to give him a hug, tell him thank you for serving, and help show him a good time in So. Cal.

Again, GREAT news. I'm really happy he is home!
