Tracy is headed West! He departed from his base last week sometime and is headed further West at some point in the next little bit. (As I'm writing this I just got word that he is out of Afghanistan :)!!!) I know you are all anxious to see him and to at least hear that he is on US soil! When he arrives in the states then he will do his demobilization training near ElPaso for a few days. Then the girls and I will be driving to Austin to pick him up! Those are our plans for the next couple of weeks. I'm sure when he gets his cell phone turned on then he will be calling some of you, but he may just be flat exhausted from the traveling and sleeping on cots for a solid 2 weeks straight!
It has been a challenging year for both of us and we are both excited for him to get home! We look forward to seeing everyone at our house on Sept. 10th for a joint birthday party and Welcome-home party!
You can be praying for his safe travel and our reunion as it approaches in a few short days.
Thank you all for your love and support over these last 15 months!
