Yesterday Patrick's brother left for Iraq. I think it was 2003 when Brandon joined the Army as an enlisted infantryman. He lived in Germany for a few years where he met my lovely sister "in law in law" Verena =) They have the most beautiful little girl LILLIE BEAN. Last year Brandon joined the WV National Guard as an Officer..CONGRATS. Unfortunately he was shortly scheduled for a 13 month deployment and was off to 3 months of work ups (training for deployment).
