Happy Birthday, to my Brother

Today is my only brother’s birthday.  Since he entered the Air Force in 1984, we have probably seen each other a handful of times.  We live so far away from each other, but my love for him transcends the miles.  I really hardly know him as an adult, but I have the fondest memories of our childhood.  He was always there for me, my partner in crime.  What I do know about his life makes me so proud to call him my brother.  He served our country in the Air Force for 22 years.  He spent a lot of time away from his family serving around the world in places including Saudi Arabia in Desert Storm, the Republic of Korea, and Kirkuk during the current war.  His military decorations include an Airman’s Medal, 3 Meritorious Service Medals, 4 Air Force Commendation Medals, 3 Air Force Achievement Medals, and a Joint Service Achievement Medal.  He retired in 2006.   I wasn’t surprised when he and his family decided to make Alaska their home.  He was always an outdoorsman.  I am sending my well wishes and prayers out to him today that he will have a blessed birthday and to let him know how much I’m thinking of him.  Happy Birthday, Brother.  I Love You.

    Happy belated Birthday to your brother. Alaska is quite a distance, but I hear its beautiful up there.

    I have four of them and they are all older than me by 12-19 years, and live several states away….but God has blessed our relationship still as I am pretty close to them, their wives and children. In fact one of my brothers will be visiting today from MN!
