WAHIAWA - Second grader Katie Moniz (right) paints a tropical seascape on a pillowcase to support Operation Headrest at the Trinity Lutheran Church and School, here, Sept. 1. More than 180 preschool through eighth grade students decorated pillowcases with pictures and welcome home messages for single Soldiers of the 3rd Infantry Battalion Combat Team (IBCT) expected to return home to Hawaii in September. Debbie Waters, family readiness advisor, 7th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd IBCT, revitalized the program created during the brigade's 2007 deployment, "to ensure that every one of our warriors comes home to a warm, made bed - no matter what time of the day or night they return."
