Hi Jeb--great that you were able to attend another Welcome Home--this was really a great one with several hundred citizens present. I really want to thank all who came out on a chilly night to welcome Jared home--I know he appreciated all who came to welcome him back to his home town of Pleasanton. We truly do live in a great community and it is so good to see the patriotism at these events. Another one is happening this Saturday afternoon at 2:30 P.M. over on Driftwood Way.

God bless you Jared and welcome home. What a guy you are it was just amazing seeing how committed and how humble you are. You are a credit to Pleasanton and to your family. May God watch over you and keep you safe. Hugs, Janis Mulhall
