Today we went out to the airforce base to greet my brother-in-law (my wife's sister's husband) who has returned from Kuwait after just over a year.

It was really quite a spectacle; an enormous hangar with a parade row of flags, a band blaring "Sweet Home Alabama", firetrucks spewing gouts of water in long arcs over a slowly approaching plane, and then of course the real waterworks as fathers are united with wives and children.

We went to their home for a small lunch. The street was lined with flags all the way up to his front door. Talk about a hero's welcome!

I have a great deal of respect for my brother-in-law. He's such a true person, a man of high integrity.
