Wednesday Hero 02/17/2010

Capt. Ferris W. Butler

U.S. Army

Capt. Ferris W. Butler, former platoon leader with D Company, 214th Infantry Regiment, 10th Mountain, 2nd Brigade Combat Team out of Fort Drum, N.Y., talks to the Soldiers at Morale, Welfare and Recreation east Feb. 5 at Joint Base Balad, Iraq. Butler, a Port Tobacco, Mass., native, participated in Operation Proper Exit, which brings Veterans who were injured in Iraq back to the country to revisit the area and share their stories.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

Looks like there are three other hero's up there with him. I like the new picture, too. You need to get one of both your boys in uniform for your main page.

coffeypot....truly, there are countless heroes we will never learn the names of.
Thanks for noticing the new photo...John has been promoted to Senior Airman, I'm so very proud of him.
As for a photo of both my sons...would be awesome. Haven't seen both my sons together in almost 2 years-that was at a celebration for AM's & Hubster milestone birthday party. Haven't seen my oldest son in his Blues for ages! I see him in civies when he comes home, perhaps on the 10th when he deploys 'll see him in his ABU's...
I thank you for stopping by!
