Whew, Team Walker made it!!! Number 7 down in the books and hoping it will be the last one we will have for a while. I am convinced that deployments are only doable because of the anticipation of a homecoming later. As a family, we have always been so blessed to have wonderful neighbors and friends anywhere we have lived and where we are now, has proved to be no different. We are so blessed by the people around us here. Month after month, our friends stood by our side, helping where ever help was needed. From changing a smoke alarm battery, to a best friend to give you a hug at the end of a rough day, to a man that graciously asked to take my hubby's place by taking our little girls to a father daughter dance. Our lives have been changed, we have been humbled by so many servant like hearts and we will forever be grateful. So it is only fitting that at the end of this journey they were there to welcome our family hero home. We love and thank each of you. As a country, it is this kindred spirit that keeps America going. It is servitude of another kind, but one still just as important to the mission. Because you all cared, it was comforting to a Marine far away serving his country. Because you acted, he was able to perform without worry or care for what his family may be needing. So number 7, is dedicated to you, our family, friends and neighbors, with love from us, Team Walker.
