'We love him and miss him terribly'
My husband, SGT Daniel Bourgeois of the NH Army National Guard, is serving a year long tour of duty in Baghdad, Iraq with the 3643d Security Force. Dan has been in the Guard for 15 yrs. His civilian job is the Production Manager at Meadowbrook Musical Arts Center in Gilford, NH. We have 3 children, Jasmine 10, Maccoy 8, and Chloe 7. Dan's unit will be home in Sept of this year. We are so proud of him! We love him and miss him terribly, he really is our hero.
