Here I am with my boys. I took the earliest leave in my unit so I could be home for their 4th birthday.
When you deploy for a year, the Army let’s you go on a 2 week leave. Generally soldiers try to take leave midway through their tour to break up the year. I promised my boys I would be home for their birthday so that meant leave would be only after 45 days in country. Well here I am reunited with my family after a grueling 5 day trip home from Baghdad.
The first thing we did was go to Papa Ginos for a real (Non-Army) Pizza.
