I cannot look at this picture without tears welling up in my eyes.
This photo was taken at the New Hampshire airport where soldiers were on a layover enroute to Afghanistan.
The people dressed in civilians are volunteers from the USO, VFW, Girl Scouts and other locals who wanted to show support for our military. They lined the hall and cheered for, shook the hands of, and hugged soldiers as they passed by.
What a way to send people into battle!
They provided pizza, drinks, snacks, and more than anything else, they were an encouragement to weary travelers.
Matt said the "tremendous support from the New Hampshire folks was impressive".
I do believe the send off was good for their bodies and soul.
So thank you to the people of the New Hampshire!
