It was April 25, 2003 when they returned to San Diego, California.
The USS Shiloh was one of the first ships sent out in the beginning of the war. It was the first to fire missiles and one of the first ships to return home.
Here is a link I found about the Shiloh http://www.uscarriers.net/cg67history.htm
I can't believe it's been 10 years!
Most of these pictures are from my husband's camera. Some I do not know where they came from.
Here are my pictures first-
We later found out that this picture was in multiple newspapers from one end of the states to the other, even back home in Utah. Our son was 6 and in kindergarten at the time. He is now in 10th grade and turned 16 last month.
Yes, I had a post-war baby!
God Bless our military and their families! I'm thankful for these memories. It feels like yesterday and it still brings tears to my eyes.
If you are in any of these pictures and would rather not be on here, please let me know!
