Christmas Homecoming

Freedom Flight

War is over. From a Walmart Supercenter parking lot, I watched C-130 Hercules’ fly in to Niagara Falls International Airport with US troops coming back from Iraq.

My wife shared tears of joy with a Niagara Falls, NY mother who rejoiced at the sound of the turboprops overhead.  “That’s my son.  My son is on that plane!”

It will be a wonderful Christmas for her family.
