Welcome Home Troops!

The article below pretty much sums it up. Sgt Mark Bell did a great job taking myself and 2 of my good friends, Magic Dancers Kelly and Erin, throughout the Radisson Hotel in Orlando to meet everyone who attended the Yellow Ribbon Workshop in Orlando. The event is held once a month by the 81st Regional Support Command to reintegrate soldiers back into society after fighting for our country. The families that I had the privilege to speak with have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. I spent the majority of the time with kids of all ages discussing anything and everything you can think of. With the babies I learned that 'E' is for Elmo and 'D' is for Drum and with the big kids we talked about sports, TV shows, and girlie stuff.

It was a wonderful feeling to be able to personally thank the men, women, and families who go overseas to keep us safe here in the states. I have had the honor to entertain our troops on several occasions in various countries and it always amazes me how appreciative visits like today can mean to a soldier. It was an honor to be invited to this event and once again THANK YOU to everyone who serves our country!

Love Always,
