I have not been one of those people counting down to when the guys come home. In part, it just seemed too depressing to see a ticker on someone's email that read "my husband will be home in 11 months, 2 weeks, and 3 days." But now, Allen will be home no later than August 15, so I am on countdown. I tried to put the ticker in the sidebar, so everyone would see it. I wasn't able to do that, but, may I redirect you to the bottom of the screen, where there is a ticker counting down to Allen's return home to his family.
