Hail and Farewell

Tonight was the Black Falcon Hail and Farewell at a very yummy italian restaurant. It was a bittersweet night for us as we were being farewelled. After 4 years with this battalion it was time to say goodbye. There were 5 soldiers being farewelled, 2 of which are great friends of ours (as well as their spouses). Kyle is the longest serving officer in this battalion which is unheard of.

I am so proud of all that he has accomplished while part of the Black Falcons. He has done many amazing things including becoming a jumpmaster, earning foreign jump wings (cambodian and canadian), deploying to Iraq and Haiti, Bronze Star medal recipient and earning his Senior Parachutist badge(30 jumps). I don't want people to think that I am bragging, I am just so incredibly proud of him for the soldier  and man that he is!

It was a great night getting together with everyone enjoying good food and even better company. I will leave you all with this picture:

I hope everyone is having a great night!!!


  1. Bittersweet, alright. I know great things lie ahead for you, though!

  2. Leaving somewhere you've called home is always bittersweet, but just think of everything you guys have to look forward to!

    And as far as bragging - why shouldn't you?! You're proud of your husband and all he's accomplished (plus this is YOUR blog), so brag away!

  3. Cute pic! Was it the Italian restaurant downtown? I love that one :)

  4. Great accomplishments for your husband, brag away! :)

    Can't wait to see what adventures you guys have next!


Love hearing from you!! :)
