Sometime this afternoon Matt got his papers declaring him a civilian.
I'm headed to Seattle tomorrow to join him for the ride home.
So the journey that started with profound pride and sadness more than three years ago will end in profound pride and happiness, and a long ride home.
Hope to take a lot of pictures to share.
My heartfelt thanks to those who have taken the time to stop by here and offer words of encouragement.
I can never express how much it has meant.
It's difficult to show emotion through this media.
So all I can do is tell you that time and time again I have been moved to tears by the generous support of people I have never met.
I stand in never ending support and with the utmost respect for our men and women serving this great country.
