Sesame Street is helping families thru a new program called
Talk, Listen, Connect Deployments, Homecomings, Changes. In recognition of the contributions made by the United States Armed Forces, Sesame Workshop presents this bilingual educational outreach initiative designed for military families and their young children to share.
We were asked if Brandon wanted to meet Elmo and be filmed for this program. They told us that our footage might be used on the news as promotional footage. The web site is http://www.sesameworkshop.org/tlc/ for anyone who has be deployed and has young children this is a great program.
This is Brandon holding an Elmo puppet that they gave the children.

Brandon and Elmo talking :)
A hug goodbye. This was all very sweet (a chance in a lifetime) and I hope Brandon will always remember when he met Elmo.
