    My Brother: My American Hero

     

    Philip,

     

    This Father's Day, I would like to recognize and honor you, my big brother.

     

    I know that there are plenty of fathers out there who are worthy of such recognition, but this year I cannot think of a more deserving dad.

     

    In 2011, you are going to do two incredible things:

     

    1. You are going to become a dad for the first time in July!

     

    2. You are going to serve our country once again on an 18-month tour in Afghanistan, and you are leaving in August.

     

    I'm not good at math, but I do know that means you will have about a month to hold your son in your arms and tell him how brave he will one day grow up to be, just like you.

     

    I am so proud of you for your service to this country and your sacrifices in doing so.  I know that one day your son will know just how lucky he is to have you for a dad!

     

    Happy Father's Day! I love you,

     

    Your Sister,

     

    Mary
