Glad to see the Boy arrived home from the Stink. There will be a long adjustment period, trust me on this. If he needs to, he can call me if he has to vent. From Warrior to another Warrior, please tell him thanks for his service.

John, a great day indeed for your family to have your son home safe. Keep a close eye on him PTS and take him fishing often. His arrival and fall fishing are a great coincidence and time to rejoice with family, friends, and giving thanks. Bless your family and thank him from my family as one military family to another.

Not worried in the slightest if this sounds redundant because we cannot thank your son enough. Thanks to all of the men and women that put themselves in harms way in order to help preserve the quality and way of life that we all enjoy.

Thank your son for me also. It is because of people like him, that we have the opportunity to live life the way we do. Good luck with his and your future. Hope you are able to spend quality time together while he is home.

I know exactly how you feel when you see that young man for the first time in who knows how long after they have been deployed. Our son spent a year in Mosul, and another in Bagdad two and a half years ago. I did not sleep peacefully for years. Give him my best, and thank him for my wife and I. I know when our son came home it was hard to stop hugging him, but give him a hug and handshake for us. Thank-you

We take pictures of all the big fish we catch and share them with friends, what you have shared here with us is better than any 50 incher one could catch. Because of young men and women like your son we are able to go fishing and enjoy our freedoms here at home. Thank your son from my family and take him fishing. The Burmek

Hi John. Nice video. Not ashamed to say that I had a lump in my throat at some point. We should all be so lucky to have a son like yours.........

(And a tip of the cap to the village of Algonquin for the reception. Nicely done)
