Hey everyone, some of you know my younger brother is deployed in Afghanistan at the moment and has had some close calls. Early this morning I received word that the base he is stationed was attacked and two marines have died. Fast forward to a few hours later, we receive notice it wasn't not him, though still no word if he is injured or not. My mom is flipping out and I'm hoping for the best.
I'm hoping as you read this you could take a moment to send your form of prayer or good vibes to the families that have lost their sons this day, and stationed at Camp Leatherneck who are dealing with this on a daily basis. I'm usually a strong exterior kind of guy, though we initially received an email starting with "I'm sorry to have to contact you" and the swing of emotions were quite crazy. Thanks for taking a moment to read this and hopefully this frog in my throat will go away soon.
