I am sorry for the extended absence but it’s with good reason…last night, after 10 months of deployment my brother finally came home from Afghanistan. (You may remember my post from when he left here)
There are no words to describe what it was like standing in the blazing setting El Paso sun.. watching that plane appear in the far distance, only to land right in front of us with our soldiers finally stepping foot onto USA soil. Amazing, emotional, relieving, patriotic, filled with pride, admiration, gratitude.. it is just absolutely indescribable. Welcome home, big brother. my brother, Stephen (waving to us) and his sergeant moments after stepping foot on American soil.
