I thought I'd start a thread dedicated to those who have or are currently serving in the Armed Forces. I have 2 cousins who are closer to me than my own brothers who served tours in Iraq. They both have children the same ages as my little ones and left to serve their country. Sergeant Joseph Danes, United States Marine Corps- Injured in Iraq when the driver of the truck he was in the turret of fell asleep and the truck rolled. He was in a coma for 3 months and almost died. He has done so well on his PTs since he recovered that they cannot medically discharge him. Here is a pic w/ one of his daughters. And his brother, Sergeant Jacob Danes United States Marine Corps- with one of his sons on returning home. These men are 2 of my greatest friends and 2 of my heroes. I thank all who have left home and family to defend our freedom.
