Little did we know when David left for this Military Tribute Tour to the Mid East that we would be the recipients of such an outpouring of updates. No, not from him so much, but apparently, he has people for that. We have been gifted with heart-wrenching, humorous, humbling blogs to laugh and cry over, photos to smile and sigh over, and even the snippet heard round the world of David singing “Bring Him Home.”

Maybe hardened soldiers can withstand the full impact of his voice on that song, but it is probably a mercy that his fans did not receive the full report. We are better prepared now and can anticipate the song with something close to aplomb. Hah!
We have received so much that the previous thread, which I thought would easily hold the contents of the entire trip, has become heavier than a C-17 cargo plane to load. So this thread is a much needed additional transport for supplies and we will see how far this one takes us.
There is a single thought I come away with from everything we have seen up to this point on this journey. It was brought home to me, everything I had read on the blogs, every picture, every tweet of this trip by a single photo taken by Jason Hewlett on the way to Afghanistan. The picture below (edit mine) snapped on the plane of the combat boots worn by the soldiers. The nameless, faceless, heroes. The men and women whose feet are ready to march off to hell if need be to keep the world free.
Please click on the link below to give them your thanks and a big thank you to Holly and FOD for organizing this for the fans as a way to give back.
Also, here again are the links to 3D and J.
A big thank you to them for going into harm’s way to bring hope and laughter to where it is needed most. Vaya con Dios. We are amazed by your generosity of spirit to carry this act of love to the troops, and for taking us all along for the ride.
