Welcome Home, Heroes!

You may remember from earlier posts that Nancy and Bob's son, Dan, is in the Navy. We are all celebrating the recent return of his team from Afghanistan! What you may not know is that Dan is continuing to recover after being shot in the foot while in the line of duty. We are so proud of him - his service and sacrifice - and wish him and his beautiful wife, Elizabeth, all the best as he recovers and they enjoy being back together in Virginia.

Nancy and Bob went down to welcome Dan and his teammates as they arrived home last week. One of his teammates, Taylor, surprised everyone when he arrived in new temporary legs, walking. You may remember Taylor from an earlier blog post when we shared about his injuries as a quadruple amputee and the road of recovery that is ahead for him. We will post links at the bottom of this blog post for you to read more about Taylor and how we all can support him. There will be a special fundraiser for Taylor in October, so we will keep you posted when we have more information.
