It was so good to see the back of Brandon R.'s head in the picture! I think the journal was written very well, and it sounds like everyone is being positive and that they are doing well. I know it must extremely stressful for those men and women, but BRAVO-181 can and will do this, and I can't wait to see everyone on graduation day! Hurry up March 20th!!! Love you Brandon!

PrGFofBR....I got a letter too! I even received a Valentine's Day card (I believe he arranged for it to be sent before he left)Brandon said it's been really tough and that it's harder because the unit is so large. I hope you're right though about the possibility of phone calls. That would be awesome just to hear their voices. 3/20/09 is just around the corner..woohoo!!
