Afghanistan Deployment I

Amy Proctor who was the proprietor of Bottom Line, Up Front which is now no longer active has allowed me to blog her photos. Her husband has just deployed to Afghanistan from Fort Stewart, Georgia. The pictures start with taking their children to the Warrior’s Walk…………………

We started out on the eve of Johnny Proctor’s deployment with a stroll on the Warrior’s Walk on Ft. Stewart, GA, which commemorates each fallen soldier who has died in the War on Terror from the 3rd Infantry Division. There are about 445 memorial trees planted so far.
