Happy birthday homecoming
Our daughter Amanda (on the far right) serves on the USS Wasp, stationed in Norfolk, VA. She is a 3rd Class Petty Officer and works as an Information Systems Tech aboard the Wasp. She and all of her fellow troops just returned from Bahrain from a seven month deployment. January 22nd is her 21st birthday, so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, we love you and welcome home! Mom (Susan), Dad (Randy) and Emma (little sister) Prasse.
