Welcome to the Army, Sir

In case you are a bit behind in our news, Dave returned to the US Army on Friday morning. He is not leaving his current civilian job. Instead, he will work with the Army on weekends like he used to do before retiring in March 06 as a Major. We're not sure what will happen over the next year but we'll roll with the punches. :-)

He arrived home with new uniforms today because, of course, they have changed since retiring almost three years ago. They look funky to me because it's not what I'm used to seeing him wear when in uniform!



We are also now the proud owners of new military tags. Good thing since our other ones expired a few years ago. We never bothered to get new ones until today. :-)



Now, just promise me you won't come by and steal Katie's car since I just published her military tag number.

Oh, and most importantly, we are proud of our daddy for serving our country.
------------------------------------
Thursday morning: Dave just pointed out that I have his oak leaves posted sideways. My apologies to other military members out there who noticed this. I will fix it after work today!
------------------------------------
Update Thursday night: Okay, all fixed! Hope I didn't offend anyone other than my husband. :-)

We love the AF's new uniforms - no more trips to the dry cleaners - they are machine washable!! My husband would have been one that complained about the oak leaves a well - it is so hard to watch anysort of military movie with him - he LOVES to critic it and point out all the mistakes!

Thanks to your family for serving!
