Stories: Flatdaddy: 10

Richard Sprague laughs and explains that he doesn't like to have his photo taken while his wife Patt hugs him during a Labor Day and welcome home BBQ Monday, Sept. 3, 2007. Richard returned the previous day from a 14 month-long deployment in Iraq with the Nevada Army National Guard's 593rd Medium Transportation Company. Patt retired her flatdaddy cardboard cutout of Richard, leaving it to rest among patriotic decorations on the front porch of their new home.
