Soldiers Send Off

Janna Scharf and her son, Pvt. Dallas Rankin Scharf share a moment before he boards the bus with the Idaho Army National Guard's 116th in Post Falls on Tuesday morning. Pvt. Scharf, the grandson of the late Ronald D. Rankin, is deploying to Iraq with Alpha Company. Governor Butch Otter met the soldiers at Geiger Field in Spokane as they boarded the plane for Fort Shelby, Mississippi.

  1. Thanks for the great pictures, Kerri. What an incredible show of community support for our troops at today's emotional send off. It is very much appreciated!

  2. We will be praying for him and his buddies. Thanks to all who serve in our voluntary military.

  3. Aluminium garden furniture is robust and long-lasting. However, if the protective coating is compromised it will corrode. Plastic garden furniture is naturally waterproof, so it can be left out year-round.
    Wicker outdoor living furniture was originally made from the stems of any one of 600 species of palms found in tropical regions all over the world. The palm stems were tightly woven into interlocking panels, and formed into the desired structure. Now, most modern wicker furniture is made from synthetic resin, increasing the life expectancy and reducing manufacturing costs. Today's resin furniture is often made of recycled plastic and incredibly durable, usually carrying warranties of 20 years or longer. It can be moulded to resemble real wood or wicker.Robert michaels furniture garden umbrella
