My Brother the Marine – Outside San Francisco, CA – October 2008

At this time last year, my little brother graduated from Boot Camp at Parris Island, SC and became a United States Marine. What an experience! I have never been more proud of him, but I am sure in the coming months and years of his service to our country, he will out do himself. He is brave and his Marine Corp brothers think the world of him.

So when we found out several months ago that he would be shipping to Afghanistan with these men although my heart was worried, my head knows that there are no other people on earth I would rather him be serving with. Since they are my brother’s brothers, they are also my brothers.

So, last night he called from CA to fill us in on his assignment for his deployment. Get this… he is going to be his Units K-9 handler!!! How cool is that???!!! He will meet his dog soon and is SUPER pumped. I’ll keep you all posted on their progress.

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!

That is so cool! I don't know if I'm using the correct words in English, so bare with me :)

I am, as many people are, proud of his courage and service for his country. Godspeed.
