Gulf War homecoming

When Dave deployed to the Gulf War he was attached back to his former unit, 4/7 ADA, so he had to travel back to Dexheim and fly out with them. Once the war was over though, he was allowed to fly directly back to Bitburg Airbase where we were stationed with 5/7 ADA. It made for a much nicer homecoming, since the guys flew right to their home station and the families were allowed right out onto the tarmac.

The sight of little Gerrit running out to meet Dave still brings a tear to our eyes.
