In Honor of my Little Brother

This is a long post, but good news - its almost all pictures. I thought I would do a little tribute to my younger brother (now 27) who has fulfilled his enlistment in the United States Air Force. He started his basic training 5 years ago in San Antonio, Texas followed by technical training in Wichita Falls, Texas and Mississippi and has been living in Italy for the past 4 years. He deployed to Iraq twice, has been married and divorced, seen some amazing places and lost his best friend. The little picture show as I'm going to call it has a few captions to help tell his story.

Little Brother - We are so glad you are home safe and appreciate your service to our beautiful country that we all take for granted. We love you!!!
2 tours to Iraq --
One of his visits home at Thanksgiving - pictured here with our mom, lil sis, sis' boyfriend now husband and my bro's fiancee shortly after wife --
The wife that divorced him two months after they were married while he was in Iraq for his second tour --
