    Veteran's Day - Tribute to my younger brother Josh

     
    Happy Veteran's Day.

    This is my tribute to my younger brother Josh, who served four long years in the Army, including Iraq. This is a photo of him from December 29, 2008, the first year he was in the military. This photo was taken in Iraq.

    Josh made it back home in one piece, which I am extremely grateful, and benefited from the GI Bill. He is about to graduate from the University of Montana with an Associates of Applied Science - Information Technology.

    Military service is not easy, as it demands the best in each individual. This can certainly take a strong mental and physical toll on a person.

    Every service member has my absolute respect for their commendable services for our country. I am very proud of my brother, and all the other noble men and women who have served and died in our military and continue to serve each day. We owe you a tremendous debt. Thank You for your investment into this country's future and the sacrifices you have made for us all.
