This is a picture me and my brother (I actually have two). He is 2 yrs younger than me and we used to be close. Now, not as much.
Anyway, he is in the Army and is deploying this week for the second time to Iraq.
I am so proud of him but at the same time, I am scared for him, for us.
He has three children and a new wife. He has just come back into our life's in the past few years and now will be gone for another year. I am not sure exactly when he is leaving, he could be gone now. I just know it is this week. His oldest and only son's bday is on Thursday.
Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. He said if we do pull out of Iraq this year, he will be there longer than a year.
