Check the spelling--I believe Aaron's last name is Jagger not Dagger!

I was incorrectly identified as "being in charge of these welcome home events". Not true. I am privileged to be one of many who participate. Recognition should go to Pleasanton Military Families Support Group.

Being a military member from P-Town, and having family still living there, I can say that Pleasanton is a VERY supportive town for men and women in boots. I felt very appreciated when I returned home from the Sandbox back in 2005. Even people that disagree with the politics that sent us over to that part of the world seemed to be proud to support their Troops when they returned home. My younger brother is currently serving as well, and had made many trips to that AOR. It is refreshing to know that your hometown will welcome you home with open arms after a long, arduous ordeal such as that. I am happy to serve citizens such as yourself...people that remember to take care of those who stand watch for them. YOU make ME proud.

Welcome Home Sgt's Jagger and Sanchez and thank you for your service. I'm sure you know that Freedom isn't Free and it's efforts like yours that makes what we have here so wonderful.

Thanks,
JP

Welcome back Sergeant Michelle Sanchez. You might remember me and son Chad Agustin who lived across the street from your former residence on Yellowstone Court. Chad followed behind you, Foothill Class of 2007, and is currently finishing his SOCOM training at Ft. Bragg as a combat medic, Army Ranger. Good to know Pleasanton gave you a heroes welcome home celebration.
