This weekend, I received a package from Thomas in Afghanistan, on behalf of the communities of Pine, Conifer and Bailey.

It contained a United States Flag and a special certificate that says:

"This is to certify that the accompanying American flag was flown over Camp Julien in the face of the enemy by Officers, NCOs, and Soldiers of the 1st Embedded Training Task Force Phoenix, Kabul, Afghanistan, on July 4, 2004. May this certificate be a testament to the soldiers who died in combat to preserve the freedom of others."

Presented to:

The Communities of Pine, Conifer and Bailey, Colorado.


It is signed by Thomas and the commanding officer of the 45th Infantry Brigade.

I think it would be nice if we make this available to local schools and fire departments to fly (and others as the Pinecam 45th Infantry Brigade directs)

:patriot:


It brings tears to my eyes. Thank you Thomas and the 45th Infantry Brigade! Thank you to the men and women serving.

We're on hold pending Thomas, Pop. We're still collecting, though.

Image 45th Infantry Brigade Returns From Afghanistan Image

It?s with a sigh of relief and great deals of joy that Kathi, Cos and I can announce the return of the 45th Infantry Brigade from Afghanistan. This is a move that we have been aware of since June but were asked by Thomas not to make it public. There have been instances in the past where troops were hurt because it got out that their unit was rotating and the rebels took the opportunity to ambush them on the way to their staging and shipping area. When he alerted us in June, he anticipated the return to take place in late August. That is now history, thank God.

We're also glad to report that according to news sources, the 45th did not suffer any combat losses.

See the full story here. Thank you, Ranger Bob, for this link.

We realize that this may come as a surprise to most of you, especially those that have been contributing to our support campaign all along. Rest assured that we have been collecting all of your goods donations and have them stored and safe. In the next few days we will announce the new military unit that we are adopting now that the 45th is home. Your contributions will be headed to Afghanistan soon.

And now for the real good news.

We have been in contact with Thomas in the last few days. He and his lovely wife, Tammy, are together again and are planning on attending the 1st Annual Pinecam Picnic on the 25th!

Kathi, Cos and I cannot possibly express our appreciation enough. What Pinecam undertook in supporting the 45th was the first effort of its kind for us. We didn?t know if our mountain community would rise to the challenge. Silly us! You did, with all of the humanity and generosity we always knew was there. Thank you Pinecammers! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thomas; Welcome home, Soldier! :patriot: See you on the 25th!
