my cousin joseph is also in the military. he's my dad's nephew, and unfortunately i don't keep in touch with my dad's side of the family, but my dad just sent me these pictures of my cousin in Iraq and i thought i would share. it's pretty incredible. he's been there a few times in the past and this particular tour will most likely last until november. joseph's military family is a little bit unique. his wife is also in the military. they have 3 boys, which includes a set of twins! i can't tell you timelines or anything, but i think it is safe to say that these kids haven't had both of their parents home for more than a 4 or 5 year time span. how crazy is that?! i can't even imagine having a small children at home, and not having both parents always around. they usually take turns leaving and serving so rarely are they both home at the same time for any great lengths.
so i would like to personally say thank you to the service men and woman who make America what it is. thank you! as we have a nice relaxing 3-day weekend lets remember those you have fought and those who are currently fighting.
