"At the end of our explorations we will be at the place where we started and know it for the first time." -- T.S. Eliot
These words were shared with me by my daughter, Theresa Marie, before I left on my trip. She gave me 10 cards to open and they all had quotes on them. The above quote is so true. Today I come Home. I will look a the USA and Pittsburgh a lot differently than when I left for my journey. I am a different person now than when I left.

Pitt's Berenato to visit U.S. troops overseas
I am traveling (24 hours now) and am so excited to see my family. I look forward to hugs and telling stories. I just can't wait! I look forward to coffee in the morning, my bed, a shower, home cooking, reading the paper, green grass, and more hugs from Jack and the kids.
Work also excites me. When I think of my job I know it is the best job in America. Solders have the passion for their jobs and a lot of them feel they have the best job in the world. I know I am grateful for them. I pray for them and I honor them.
I hope to write a follow up about things I couldn't share with you while away, but for today it is planes and customs and good byes to four new and dear friends that I met. Billy, Orlando, Duggar and Mike safe travels and God Speed!! And for me:
There's no place like Pitt
