I would honestly give just about anything to hop on a plane to South Korea and find my brother to give him a hug today. I haven’t seen him since May and he won’t be back until this coming May. Why so far away, you ask? Well my amazing big brother is serving our country as an Army Soldier at Camp Hovey. He’ll be over there until May 2011 and is scheduled for his deployment to Afghanistan next fall.
Today is Veteran’s Day and I’m thankful for all men and women who have given themselves to this country to protect me and my way of life. I am happier than words can express that my brother is still alive, but we can’t forget all of those who have given their lives while serving. Take a moment to thank a service man or woman today and, if you can, give one a hug for me. I’d give anything to be able to hug my soldier today!
