Jay Price of The News and Observer has a well-written story today about the return of a North Carolina National Guard unit from Iraq yesterday. In a world where so many things are going so wrong on so many fronts, the dedication and commitment of our National Guard is a bright and inspiring light.
If grief and numbness could be squeezed out of a soldier, the homecoming that the 1132nd Military Police Company got Tuesday would have erased its 10 months in Iraq.
Everywhere, people were bawling and hugging harder than they had ever hugged. Wives, husbands, moms, dads, kids and then soldiers started embracing each other.
