Countless times, I have mentioned how amazing it is to participate in an Operation Welcome Home Maryland event. The absolute honor of shaking hands, while looking into the eyes and saying, "Thank You" to the brave men and women who protect our freedoms is simply THE BEST feeling.
OWH-Maryland has a brand new website which is extremely well done! Please keep in mind; this is all-volunteer! Due to receiving a high number of unexpected flights recently, there is a shortage of snacks and water for the 'goodie bags'. If you can, please visit the website and help out.
I've attached a video of an OWH-Maryland event below.
Scroll down a bit and you will also find the names of International Airports which welcome home troops. If you live near one of these cities, I encourage you to just once stand in the receiving line of our soldiers! (this may not be a complete list, so please pass along info, so that I can update my blog).
If you do not live near an airport, please help through the USO. It only takes a minute, but will make a huge difference to a soldier or family member!
Palm Beach International Airport
Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
Spokane International Airport
Atlanta-Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport
**On a side note-MudPuppy will be reunited with his mom, family and friends tonight! With permission, I will post photos I receive of this very special homecoming!
May Almighty God Bless each and every Airman, Soldier, Sailor and Marine!
