Original post made by Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Jan 1, 2010

Buescher, an American Airlines pilot who with his wife Tracey is active in the Pleasanton Military Families organization, recently flew an American Boeing 757 from Dallas to Sacramento, to Los Angeles, to San Diego, to Phoenix and back to Dallas, picking up some 180 children between the ages of 5 and 18 who had a parent killed in action while serving in Afghanistan or Iraq.

I am very impressed with the article I have just read. I wish the writer of can continue to provide so much worthwhile information and unforgettable experience to readers. There is not much to tell except the following universal truth: The only advantage in making computers understand English is that it will prove once and for all that programmers can't write English. I will be back.
