81 soldiers from the 101st Sustainment Brigade returned home from Afghanistan on Sunday

 

Returning Soldiers completed the return of the 227th quartermaster Company

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell, KY – The 101st Airborne Division gave a joyous welcome home to the final 81 soldiers from the 227th Quartermaster Company as they returned from Afghanistan on Sunday, June 17th, 2012. The 227th Quartermaster Company is part of the part of the 561st Combat Sustainment Support Battalion of the 101st Sustainment Brigade.

What made seeing this flight return even more touching was the fact that it occurred on Father’s Day. I stood out there on the tarmac with family members watching as this airplane with an American flag on it’s tail came closer and closer bringing home the dad’s and those single mothers who serve dual roles in the lives of their children, back to those who missed them so very much. These are not just soldiers, they are parents who sacrificed precious time that they could have spent watching their children grow up, protecting and defending the United States of America! You simply cannot watch something like this and remain unmoved.
