Today At 5:30 P.M.

Over 100 Virginia National Guardsmen will be arriving at West Point High School in West Point, Virginia (not too far from Williamsburg) at 5:30 P.M. today. They are flying in from Fort McCoy in Wisconsin where they arrived on July 16 for demobilization exercises after leaving Iraq and flying out from Kuwait. Unfortunately four members of this 237'th Engineer Company who were activated last June will not be present. One died at Fort McCoy of bacterial meningitis and three died from injuries sustained in Iraq. Luckily our daughter's beau, Bryan, will be arriving at West Point and our daughter Jeanine will be driving down to greet him.

Oh how my heart goes out to the families who have had such great loss.

What a blessing for your daughter, that she can meet her beau.
