With 95 soldiers returning home this week from Afghanistan, there are so many little boys and girls who will again know what it means to have Daddy there to scare monsters away, play games, read stories and share hugs. They have given up the past year so that other little boys and girls who they have never meant will have a place to play safely with their own Daddies and time to simply be children. They have heroes they do not know and sacrifices by other children they will never meet.
For one little girl, this hero is Staff Seargant Olson. She is lucky, because on this day, her hero came home to her and brought with him so many smiles that again return to her beautiful face.
Welcome home, SSG Olson. Your family has been waiting and we welcome you to a wonderful Wisconsin weekend and Labor Day Holiday!
