I justed wanted to show the world my beautiful daughter Shylee. She just turned 3 and is my world. I married the most beautiful woman in the world. I am almost finished with my 6th overseas deployment. I should leave Afghanistan around September and I can't wait to hold my wife Melina and daughter Shylee again. I truly have a blessed family. I am a SFC Joseph Malone....Infantry and Ranger.....I am so proud of my daughter and wife...thinking of them keeps me going.... They say that being deployed is stressful but I tell you that it takes a strong wife and child to go without their father for so long. Their job is a lot tougher and stressful than mine. I have it easy compared to them
