Robert Tolan Jr.  Returning Hero

Today I have the real privilege to talk to US Army Specialist Robert Tolan Jr.

SPC Tolan just returned from a war tour in Afghanistan with the Charlie Troop 4-9 CAV “Crazy Horse”

This is a special show for me because back around Christmas, I sent two US flags to Afghanistan to be flown there with “Operation Crazy Horse” with one of them being donated to a returning serviceman, and of course mine coming back to me. He returned to a hero’s welcome his Arroyo Grande home.

A side yet very Important part of the story is the wonderful organization Welcome Home Military Heroes, Our Mission is to WELCOME HOME all of our LOCAL returning servicemen & women and THANK them for their choice to serve our great country.  Welcome Home Military Heroes  is run by a wonderful lady Cheryl Tolan (who happens to a very proud Momma of my guest)

 Robert Tolan joined the United States Army in January 2012. After five months of training that took place at Fort Benning, Georgia he graduated and earned his sabers with the United States Cavalry Scout as an E-1 Private. He then went on to Fort Hood, Texas and joined the 1st Cavalry Division, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 4th Squadron, 9th Cavalry. He stayed there for just over a year and in July 2013 he deployed to RC East Afghanistan. He was deployed for 8 months, 2 months longer than his unit. He and 7 other soldiers from his unit volunteered to stay behind in Afghanistan to help the 10th Mountain Division fill in numbers and help train the 101st Airborne unit that was coming in to replace them. He returned on March 3rd, 2014 back into Fort Hood, Texas.
