Almost Home… 5 and wake-up

f I remember correctly, my brother RoadRage is supposed to come home December 12th. He’s almost home. I don’t remember if that’s the date he’s supposed to be home or when they leave Iraq, but I know I’m glad he’s coming back. I just hope he doesn’t get stop-lossed again and is forced to do another tour. With all the recent talk about a military draw-down, I hope he’s allowed to retire.

I miss my brother terribly. I have been worried about him since he left. It’s been worse here recently because I haven’t heard from him in about 2 months or so. I also hope the military doesn’t do him like they did my friend V concerning medical care. If they do, one consolation is that the nearest VA Hospital is here in Milwaukee and he’ll be staying with me for as long as he needs to in order to get the care he may need upon return.

RoadRage, if you’re reading this, get home safely. That’s an order, even if you do out-rank me! You better get in touch with me when you get back too! My offer still stands for throwing you a Welcome Home party.

I think the best gift Santa or whoever could give me is a safe trip home for my brother and all of the soldiers in his unit. I have to say, I’m pretty sure my brother is going to Heaven because he’s already done his time in Hell.
