'We are glad you are our soldier'
This picture is of our two girls and Warrant Officer, Scott Hinson of 3rd ID from Fort Stewart, Ga. He left on the 15th of March. He is in Iraq and due home June of 08. Total 15 mo. I believe this picture is just a small glimpse of what the children have to go through to say goodbye to their parents. He is safe and doing well, we just want to say "love you, proud of you and we are glad you are our soldier." My name is Kristi Hinson "Proud Wife"
