the sendoff

well, we sent off Jason's brother, Brian, last night. It was really hard to say goodbye (for now), but also heartwarming to see the support for their unit. What a perfect way to see them off, through a street lined with people, holding flags, banners, and signs to wish them well. Many of the people family members and loved ones giving one more wave, and others who were just fellow Americans there to show support for the troops. And isn't that what we owe to these men, leaving behind their children, spouses, and other family members and loved ones to do a job that so few choose to do for so many?
