I am thinking of my niece's husband, Brendon, this Memorial Day.  This young man will be going to Afghanistan in June for his first tour.  He has a 2 1/2 year old daughter who adores him and will miss him during his 13 month absence.  I know a lot of young men and women have made the hard decisions, left loved ones behind and sacrificed to see us all safe.  They all deserve our support and thanks!
