Soldiers' Homecoming

Tomorrow at 1:30pm is a Demobilization Ceremony at the Lane County Fairgrounds for 350 National Guard troops are returning from Afghanistan.

The public is invited to attend, to show appreciation for past bravery and service and support for being welcome home.

If it works with Smiley's nap schedule, we'll be there. He has no context to understand it but will probably enjoy it.

If I have time, I'll write a second blog post to pass along some advice I have heard about common spoken welcome home blunders (both obvious things to say that don't get said enough and things to avoid saying).
