    Welcome back to the world

    None of us stateside can imagine what you went through during your tours in Iraq. Just get back in one piece, see your loved ones, get on your bike, feel the dirt, chill. In that order

    Welcome home bro. Things on the east side there are pretty bad these days, so it is very good news that you are coming home. It will be quite nice I'm sure to don the riding suit versus the nomex suit. Enjoy the flight home---hopefully you'll stop over in Amsterdam and get to enjoy some Heineken on the way home!!
