We were all counting the days before the June 16, 2013 wedding in San Antonio, TX. It began to look like she might not be released in time. Fortunately she had the venue, bridesmaids, and food arranged before she deployed for her second term in Afghanistan. Oh yes, and she had a groom, Chuck.
Joy, joy, joy. She arrived home 10 days before the wedding and two days earlier, Chuck graduated from flight school.
Chuck's family came from New York area and other places. Katie had over 50 family and friends who came from California and Washington and far-flung spots. Five girls she went through school with arrived from California.
Oh, and did I mention that many had prayed for Katie's safe return from Afghanistan and this special day?
Joy, joy, joy!
