They're a pretty cute couple
Nik also went to OU and this was taken at his last Military Ball for ROTC.
Meet LeRoy Brown. Don't let that cute face fool you...he's a maniac!
The military is nothing new to my family. My dad served in Desert Storm and served 22 years for our country through the Army and National Guard. I can't begin to name everyone my dad served with because I know I'll forget someone. But, they know who they are and my parents are still friends with them today. My cousin Nate was in the Navy and his brother Brad is currently in the Navy. He is stationed in Seattle with his wife and twin girls. My cousin Shawn is currently in Iraq and will be home soon. My friend Nick joined the Air Force a couple of years ago and is currently in Kyrgyzstan. He only has a couple of months left of his deployment. Nik's brother Jason is currently stationed in Japan. His wife Jes recently returned to the states. They weren't directly effected by the earthquake or tsunami but read her blog!! One of my dad's oldest friends from his 82nd Airborn days is doing a lot of work with the troops currently. He made the movie Lt. Dan Band For The Common Good with Gary Sinise. If you didn't know, Gary has a band called the Lt. Dan Band and they go around the world performing for troops. Jon documents all of that in the film and puts a lot of focus on the troops. The quote from Jerry Bruckheimer on the main page says it all. If you see a man or woman in uniform...Thank Them. They are the reason we get to live our lives the way we do.
I had intended to talk about my sister...this got a little off topic but I think it needed to be said. I can always talk about sister later!
