[color=darkred][/color]Hello everyone and Happy Holidays! I am new to your group. A little about myself: I am married to a wonderful guy, we live downstate in the Adrian area. Hubby and I have 3 kids, all in their 20's. Our middle son just got married a few weeks ago and he is leaving on Dec. 26th for Iraq (with the Army) Sad We have thee most beautiful little grandangel that anyone can have Smile. She is 22 months old and the prettiest little girl you've ever seen... and I'm not biased or anthing Smile. We have a cottage on Lake Huron in Harrisville, MI. All though hubby and I have never been to the island we hope to visit this coming summer. I've always wanted to retire to an island in MI. Always. Anyway, my name is Dee and I'm glad to meet you all.

Welcome Dee, glad to have you join us. I have a nephew heading back to Iraq in January. His second tour. His first was on the front lines, and he was there for 10 months. This time he will be gone for a year. I support our troops and have a yellow ribbon on my truck, and hope all of them come home safely.

Wecome Dee. what unit is he with? and Bois Blanc Girl what unit is your soldier with? My nephew is going Jan 2 out of Fort Stuart Georgia with the 3rd, they were the ones that took the airport in Bahgdad to start with, they are going for 12 months. I think it a great idea to send an island care package to each of them next year from the island in the summer. I sent him T-shirts from the island ( a green one) and when my son was there I sent him an "Island related care package", you know maple syrup, t-shirt, picture of the lake and sunsets and us. Maybe the new owners at Hawk's would put a box out for donations and we can send them right from the post office there? Worth trying. Maybe I should have made this a new post topic...

Yes Connie, I am talking about Rachel's son. As soon as I get an address for him over there, I'll be sure to give it to you.
