The Pentagon announced its troop deployment schedule for 2005 today, here is the link.
I make note of this because I want to wish good luck and Godspeed to every soldier being deployed. May God continue to watch over you and bless you and your families. Your service is not in vain and at least this American thanks you.
On a more personal note, I have mentioned in the past that my brother is a member of the 101st Airborne. They are among the units listed on the deployment schedule. I find it hard to convey my feelings to my younger brothers sometimes and him in particular. Must be from all the knock-down, drag-out fights we had as kids and even young adults, but I want him to know that I am proud of his service in the military for the past 13 years and continue to be. Stay safe and come home to your wife and children.
Here are some links to sites that directly help the men and women in our military.
