Pam, I received your letter and memorials on the Memorial Day weekend. It was such a lovely letter letting me know your group greeted my son's plane on May 1 as he left the country for Germany to serve. In spite of your husbands illness you still took time to write me to let me know how you got up in the late night hours to greet his troop and wish them well. It touches my heart to know there are people like you all out there that will watch out for my son and treat him like family. Your love and dedication is not lost on Robert's family back here in SC. We miss him terribly but have a warm feeling having known your group has sent him on his way with love and warm wishes. God Bless you all! Pam, you and your husband are in our prayers for his swift and complete recovery! God Bless. Love, Betsy Lamontagne

When my wife and I received a call from our daughter SSG Desirae T. Anderson as she was deploying, it warmed our hearts to hear her voice. She told they had stooped at very nice place where all the Soldiers received a warm welcome and exceptional treatment. She also told me pictures would be available if I made contact with the Pease Greeters. I did and JoAnne responded immediately. As a Retired US Army member it's great to know that there are still GREAT Americans who love, respect and treat our military so well. It's because of people like the Pease Greeters, that I, my wife and now our only child guard the wall of FREEDOM. My wife and I are very proud of our association with and we thank you for all you do!

I'm in tears as I compose this. My son, William Brandon Taylor, returned from Afghanistan on April 26th. The first thing he told us, with tears in his eyes, was about the amazing welcome they received in New Hampshire! His grandpa,who passed away last year, was a veteran and was very active in the American Legion. My son said seeing all of the greeters made him think of his grandpa. What a wonderful memory for him. I received my CD with all of the pictures this weekend. What a great surprise! I noticed how tired our soldiers looked when they arrived in New Hampshire and noticed the change in their demeanor and the smiles on their faces when the boarded their flight home ! What a difference you made in their lives! I have no words other than thank you, thank you, thank you! You make a difference!

Dear Pease Greeters,
I cannot tell you how much it meant to my son in law that your were all there on April 26th to welcome him home. He did tell me it was something new for him. I wanted to pass on to what ever veteran there had the flag that was flown in Guadacanal, you really dont know how much that touched him. My father was in world war II and fought on Guadacanal. Mike saw that flag and heard the story and just new my Dad was there to welcome him home. My dad past away 2009, but was a great Marine, and American. Please give my name and address to that veteran, I would love to see if he was their with Maurice J Simon. 112 Drury Lane Slidell, LA 70460. Also, I learned this was the 700 flight you welcomed home. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!

Wow! Unexpected call in the wee hours of the morning....my son was re-routed through Portsmouth heading to the Middle East.
Not only did we get to see him but the Pease Greeters made the hometown boy feel like a hometown hero. Thank you each and everyone of you for all you do. You made a bittersweet moment one that our family will NEVER forget!
My son's response to all the fuss caused over him? "I forgot how genuinely nice people in New Hampshire are...I miss this..."
You make New Englanders so proud and this mother forever grateful. Now see you on the flip side!
