Today we showed up in true 'Cav' spirit sporting black and yellow and wearing our "Until They All Come Home" wristbands. The kids seemed excited and were ready to do this, I on the other hand was a nervous wreck for them! (Girl and Boy 2 are pretty shy.) However when the time came, they NAILED it! They spoke loud and clear! They were applauded several times and Boy 2 brought many laughs when he check his hand when it came to the word "proclamation"!
They each introduced themselves:
Boy 2 said "and he is also deployed to Afghanistan" (more applause!)
Girl Said, "We would like to thank General Campbell for dedicating this day to kick off a month of honoring and celebrating Military children."
Boy 2, "Thank you for taking the time to sign the (look at hand) proclamation and for supporting Military children like us."
Boy 3 ended it by saying, "Please welcome General Campbell."
After General Campbell spoke briefly he invited all the children up while he signed the proclamation.
