AAR: return of DANG Airmen from Afghanistan
On Wednesday, 9/21/2011, William, (WWR), myself (Bud McC), and two Warriors Watch Riders (Vern and Bruce) went to the Delaware Air National Guard (DANG) airbase in New Castle, DE, and welcomed home ten Airmen from Afghanistan.
William (WWR) presented each Airman with a WWR medal, and I ensured each Airman received a special hug from me, since I’m a former Airman. The Airmen thanked us for honoring them, and this Welcome Home event will be remembered by them and us.
Since there were so few of them and us, we went able to spend more time with the Airmen, and we spoke a bit about our own and their deployments with the military experience we each shared.
SMSgt Shaune Peters, the DANG spokesperson, thanked us for our Mug & Hug.
