Just got the word, my son is on his way home from Iraq.

I am so relieved, I am in near tears.  With the news reports of 5 more has died when we could not see his myspace update and not able to get a hold of his wife for a while this morning....

He is out of the danger zone and on the way home.  He has a "year" off until the next deployment.

One day at a time.  

We need to work together so they all come home safely and with their sanity.

I am going to go celebrate at lunch today!!

Update..
Thanks I have never been rec'd before...

All I hear in my head is the Alice Cooper song "I'm coming home".

Update II..
eigenman pointed out that the song is by Ozzy, not Alice.

Thanks!, just so relived to the point of crying sometimes!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
