Folks, there are plenty of ways to celebrate our freedoms on the 4th of July, but this is a setup which is hard to beat. SPC Huckstep is serving on the front lines of freedom and deserves to know we care.July 2, 2010 at 10:18 pm #2751keithlongacreModerator
FYI! I attend St Philip's UMC right across the street from this event. If any of U want to go to church & to the welcome home, I extend an invite for U to be our guest.
Our traditional service is at 8:15 in the chapel with a contemporary service at 9:30 in the FLC (family life center). I will be riding my big flag bike to the church so I can go right over after I get out of SS. And Yes, I will be wearing my gear & patriotic shirt.
Hope to see U there. PS I also plan on eating breakfast with the boy scouts.July 3, 2010 at 12:46 pm #2752

Man, this was great. We handed out all 60 flags to folks from the neighborhood who were on hand for pancakes and to welcome home SPC Huckstep. They lined both sides of Great Oaks in front of the fire station. It was wonderful to see people of all ages standing with our flags, especially on the 4th of July.
Great job, Steve, ya'll looked good coming up the street behind the fire truck. Here's wishing this young soldier a fun time on his well earned leave at home.
