    Salute to troops

    Deployed Birthday Hero

    Our son is now deployed for a fourth deployment serving a vital role in Ethiopia. He is a Staff Sergeant in security forces in the USAF, and is an RTC instructor as well as a CATM instructor. Our son has been on active duty for eight years and he is now separated from his wife and daughter located at his home duty station in Germany. Holidays, birthdays and special events are always put on the back burner when you serve in the military so we would like to send this salute to him on his birthday. Like many other families that send their sons and daughters fathers, husbands and mothers, we thank all of them for their support and especially to our son ..Our Hero. Happy Birthday Stephan
