    I just wanted to share that my bro is coming home tomorrow after an 18 month tour. He is a Captain in the Army and I'm very proud of him. I always get nervous when they are in the last leg of their trip home. My husband is Air Force so this isn't anything new for me. Just different when it's my younger brother.

    Thanks so much! Today is the day. I talked to him yesterday and he is pretty tired(although he would never admit it [​IMG] ) THere is going to be a big homecoming at the base where he is stationed. Wish I could be there [​IMG]
