Re: ***Welcome Home Mission*** 192nd MP Bn Freedom Salute Invitation Hartford CT SAT SEP 11th 1100hrs

Bob, please pass on my gratitude to all the PGR that were at our Freedom Salute.

It was, for lack of a better term, sureal, that our official welcome home was on the 9th aniversary of the attacks on our country. If not for those attacks, the PGR may have never been formed, and I would not be needing a welcome home.

I just want to express my deepest thanks for what the PGR (just as the CT Rolling Flags did for us after Desert Storm and OIF 1) does to support us. You all take the time out of your schedules, away from your families on a weekend, to stand tall, holding our nations flags.

THAT IS PATRIOTISM. THAT IS HONOR. THAT IS PRIDE.

I thank you for being there, not just for me and the 192 MP BN, but for all our Connecticut Soldiers. I am honored to know that I will ride with you all someday.

Best regards,
Marc
