Every day, more than 100 soldiers pass through DFW Airport on their way home for two weeks of well-deserved rest and recuperation (R&R). As they return home from their service in Iraq and Afghanistan, volunteer greeters begin the troops’ visit on a high note. They are in need of volunteers each day to welcome home our heroes -- it's simple to do, easy to find and extremely rewarding. Click here for more information about how you can get involved. We had the opportunity last week to participate in Welcome Home A Hero at the DFW airport, in conjunction with SLANT 45, the philanthropic initiative for this year’s Super Bowl, of which President and Mrs. Bush are honorary co-chairs. The soldiers arriving off the plane didn't know President and Mrs. Bush would be there to greet them and their faces as they came around the corner to see the President were priceless. Anyone who comes to greet our troops will be an immense blessing to them- just a handshake, a poster or a smile will make their day. If you're looking for a simple way to give back, this is it. Thank you to Mrs. Bush for posting a few of these pictures on her facebook page! See them here: http://fb.me/HAKMeimg
