Michelle Slichter

Originally from Sheffield, England, Michelle moved to the USA and married a soldier in the Idaho National Guard. Together they have two children.

Michelle’s husband is a recruiter for the Idaho National Guard, which was recently deployed to Iraq. While the unit was preparing for departure, Michelle decided to look up the origins of the Yellow Ribbon. Although unable to locate any particular story that started the tradition, this poem started in her head.
