Friday's Service Salute was sent in by the Texas Tech Orthopedic Surgery staff. They wanted to honor LTC Miguel Pirela-Cruz.

We're told he recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan. Dr. Cruz serves with an Air Force Reserve Unit based at the Homestead Air Force base in Miami, Florida. We're also told that Miguel has served for more than 20 years.

The staff says they are so happy that he has returned home where he is the Chairman of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.

Thank you all for participating in our Service Salute.
