    Well, I posted previously that she was leaving in April, but that is when they are leaving for the Middle East. She got 2 weeks notice to report to Ft. Meade, Md and leaves tomorrow morning.

    Thank you everyone for your good wishes and prayers for her...here is a photo of her holding her prize rooster at her first show where he was reserve grandchampion! She is sooo proud of him. Dixiechick is the new owner of him...thanks Denee!

    Would like to make this thread a support thread for all of us who have loved ones who are deployed or serving in the military. For some of us, deployment is a new thing...for many of you it's old hat by now. I know I would appreciate all the information and support I can get!! Thanks

    Again, thank you all so much. Knowing that folks still support our soldiers and pray for them is very meaningful to me as a parent...and I know it is to our soldiers. We had to rehome all our show cochins and I want to thank everyone who bought them. I feel blessed knowing that they went to great homes where they will be loved and cared for. [​IMG]
