Welcome Home!!!

in Anything Else

Yesterday, May 12, 2006, my brother Army Staff Sergeant Patrick C. Hynes returned home from a 12 month tour of duty in Iraq– 6 months in the Taji area in the north of Baghdad (including parts of Sadr City), and 6 months in Western Iraq out of the Al Asad Airbase, monitoring the Jordanian border and Marine convoys through Fallujah and Ramadi.

He is quite glad to be home with his two daughters and loving and appreciative family. It was a great homecoming. My mom was quite pleased that all four of her children were in the same place for the first time in a while on Mother’s Day weekend. He slept for about 12 hours before getting up this morning! He and I took his daughters all around shopping– he has a lot of catching up to do on all those CDs and DVDs he missed! We may even have to tackle a few spirits later on this evening! (wink, wink)

A real welcome home.

I bet his girls love having their dad back safe with them.

I’m sure they and all your family rate him as the hero he is.

These guys (and girls) are the real hero’s in any country.

As I said the other day to you, Ryan, wish your brother a hearty welcome home from me and give him my thanks for his service to our country!!!

Thank you all for your kind words and support! My brother is having his welcome home party as I write, with family and friends filling the hall of my childhood home up in Rhode Island.
