From sand to snow
Being home in Cottage Grove after spending nine months in Iraq feels a little like waking up from a dream, said 1st Sgt. Larry Clatt.
"The time went fast, but yet it went slow, and all of a sudden I'm home, and it was just like, whoa," he said. "I feel a little third-wheelish."
Hearing that, his wife Sue Clatt was quick to offer to bring out the "honey-do list," which she said she was going to hold back until his second week at home.
