    Salute to troops

    Our hero

     
    1LT Michael Skinner with the Alabama Army National Guard left on a year long deployment to Afghanistan in October 2011. He left behind a wife and 2 children, the youngest being only 2 months old at the time. He and his wife are a dual military couple who have been seperated what seems like more often than not. This tour to Afghanistan has been his second deployment, the first being to Iraq several years ago. As his Family awaits his arrival back in the states, they want to salute him so that he knows what a true hero he is. His Family is very proud of him and loves him very much.
