The Proud Family

Fighting soldiers from the sky

Fearless men who jump and die

Men who mean just what they say

The brave men of the Green Beret

Friday we attended my brother's graduation ceremony. He received his very special "hat" on Thursday in a private ceremony. He also got a really big knife! I can't quite comprehend my laid-back, sorta goofy brother knowing a hundred ways to kill a person but he can make a pretty mean face. R's a bit intimidated by him but B thinks he's great.

We're enjoying a relaxing weekend all together for probably the last time before he's off to Afghanistan in the fall.

i find it so strange to see my crazy & goofy little brother in his marine uniform... it makes me remember that 1. he is a man & 2. that all the guys over there are someone's family. makes it more personal.

You must be really proud, Amy. My dad was Navy for 21 years and I have a loving appreciation for what these men and women do in the name of patriotism. Praying for you brother as he serves.
