Today begins, what will undoubtedly be, a rough 7 months. My brother, Ryan, is leaving Germany today to begin a 30 day training program here in the states, and will then head over to Afghanistan for 6 months. He is a Sr Staff Sargent and fire fighter in the US Air Force. My sister in law, Steph, will stay in Germany for the next 7 months, anxiously awaiting his return. I have, and will continue to, shed many tears and say many prayers for Ryan's safe return and for strength for Steph. I'm asking for prayers and warm wishes for Ryan and Steph as they both tackle tough times ahead. My heart breaks for them both.
