I Love Americans

Jonn Lilyea said that seeing so many Americans welcoming his son home from Afghanistan "brought tears to my wife’s eyes and it was hard for this old infantryman to hold my own back. Still."

Just reading about the work of Operation Welcome Home Maryland in the Baltimore Sun brought tears to mine (read it all, and note the faces in the picture accompanying the article).

The volunteers of OP Welcome Home Maryland are another terrific example of the beautiful grassroots, can-do spirit of American generosity that sees a need and acts to fill it.

Hats off to the patriots of Operation Welcome Home Maryland!
