Home to my wife and new banjo!

Posted by vampinthemiddle on Friday, December 28, 2007

Just wanted to say that I'm home from Iraq to my lovely wife and a new banjo.  I bought a 2006 RB-4 from Gibson.  I had Charlie Cushman do the set up and it is fantastic.  The money spent on that banjo was hard earned over the streets of Baghdad so I wanted it to be right.  Charlie Cushman's set up service is nothing short of exceptional.  His attention to detail and ability to get THE best sound of an instrument proves why he is a proffesional.  I highly recommend his service.

Welcome home Josh, and a big thank you for your service to our country!!!  I do not take the liberties afforded me by you and your family's sacrifice  lightly.   Thank you,

Welcome back and thanks for doing a job that few can or will do.  Please accept our heartfelt gratitude.

Enjoy that new banjo - it sounds like a real killer.

Please give your lovely wife a big hug and thank you from the Hangout bunch for the hardships she endured while missing you.

Thank you for your service. There are many more that feel the same way, contrary to what you may hear. I have an Apache pilot friend that's still there, near Balad now I believe. Enjoy being back with that nice looking lady in the photo and the new banjo! Oh yeah, have some Texas BBQ or at least some fried catfish for me when you get a chance.

Welcome Home! Thank you for your service to our country! Regardless of what political beliefs and things you have listened to while away I have not met anyone for or against being in Iraq that isn't worried and concerned for the safety of our American Soldiers. Most, as I do believe that you are incredibly brave and generous to help bring safety and stability to a very troubled part of the world. Please have a happy New Year and enjoy pick'in that RB-4 and lovin your Beautiful wife!

Welcome home, and congratulations on the new banjo!  My dad was stationed in Temple before shipping out to Korea. I've never been there, but it was a name I heard often as a kid.  You have my most sincere gratitude for your service to our country. Now go wear out that banjo!  (probably ought to spend some time with the wife, too. By the looks of things, I probably didn't need to remind you!)
