I recently flew through your beautiful town on my way to Afghanistan on 20 Nov 2015. I'm actually still in transit to my final destination, but I just had to drop a line to express my deep appreciation for all that the Pease Greeters did for myself and my fellow soldiers. This being my 5th year long deployment, there are many things that just become routine to the point of becoming mundane. The reception we received on the 20th however put everything in a different perspective. I have never been as humbled as when we first entered your terminal to the roaring applause of New Hampshire's finest Patriots! I left there with a sense of pride that I thought had dulled over time. You really put everything in perspective for us all. Thanks so much for the support love you showed to us on that day!
I have one request--an older gentleman by the name of "Louie" asked if he could have his picture taken with me on that day. Louie told me he was "84 years old going on 50"--and I believe it! He had a beautiful black Labrador on a leash who was just as loving as his master. Of course I said yes to the picture (and I would love to have a copy!----but could you please tell Louie the honor--the absolute honor--was all mine?
This was my 1st trip through New Hampshire, but it will not be my last! I may have just found a future home. Thank you Pease Greeters, and God bless you all!

Thank you! Today was a very special day, our son was returning from a 10 month deployment in Kuwait, all we knew was the wheels up approximate time and there was a possibility that they would refuel in Portsmouth. We made the trek on a whim...and it payed off. Just North of Worcester we received a phone call from our son that he was at Pease...pedal down and no traffic we arrived at the airport within the hour. The amazing Pease Greeters were already in the ceremony welcoming home our sons unit. The Greeters directed us to the ceremony, recognized that we were family, stopped the festivities while they called out our son so we could see him in front of his entire unit. I returned from deployment 19 times in a 30 year Navy career, but this one will be the Welcome Home that I will always remember and cherish. The Pease Greeters were nothing less than spectacular. When everything was done and the Soldiers boarded for their return to Colorado we were escorted to the "Fence" for the Fence Force departure. I thank each and every Greeter, what you do matters, it makes a difference, and it is very special. Hat's off! HUZZAH!!! CMDCM(SS) Ret. Mike and Gina Greaney

Hello, and thank you for the AWESOME experience we had when passing through on September 26th 2015 on our way to Africa. The kindness and generosity of the greeters was second to none! The experience is still talked about toady by the group that stopped in NH and were greeted by your team! It was a good experience for me because I was able to talk to the WWII Vets that were in attendance that night.
Thank you for all the hard work and dedication the greeter team puts into making the Soldiers feel special. It is greatly appreciated by ALL Soldiers who pass through and have the privilege of walking down Heros' Walk!
Thanks again, and God Bless you all!
