Bosnia Troops Returning Home !!

In just a few more days the brave peacekeepers of the Texas National Guard will return from Bosnia. As a fortunate civilian who witnessed their many tasks in Bosnia, I say.... "THANK YOU and your families for your service to our country and to Texas."

Mikeska's was fortunate to have been asked to cater the Family Readiness Dinner at the beautiful home of the Adjutant General of Texas, Camp Mabry, Austin Texas.

I personally cut the meats for this event. Mrs. Daniel James, the lovely wife of the Adjutant General did a beautiful job decorating the guest tables and setting the china service pieces. (Special Thanks.... to Mrs. James mother whom I met that evening and assisted with the serving. She also inspired me with some wonderful observations regarding our shared faith.)

Here I am with Major General James prior to our departure for Bosnia.

Major General Robert Halverson and Major General Raymond F. Rees. General Halverson commands the 49th Division in Bosnia. General Rees is Vice Chief of the National Guard Bureau in Washington D.C. I also had the great honor to finally meet Mrs. Halverson at the Family Readiness Dinner last Friday evening.

This special picture (taken near the Sultanovici killing fields) reminds me of the destruction and despair of the residents of Bosnia. In the background stands a bombed out home. On the left is a United States armed Humvee (part of our Military Police Security Detachment) and finally on the right is a young survivor of the war in Bosnia. I often think about the many opportunities our children have and then I reflect on what future lies ahead for this young boy. Our Texas National Guardsmen, by their peacekeeping mission in this region, hope to preserve this young boys future.
