Wordless Wednesday that is not so wordless!

This is a picture of my brother (left) and two of his friends when they graduated from West Point in 2005. My brother David is currently serving in Iraq. This is the second time he has been sent there since he graduated. My brother and I have not always gotten along but, as we grew up we became closer. He is a good man; he works hard and plays even harder. As I have moved from Wy, we have not been able to see each other very often; in fact this was the last time that I saw him. It is still amazing to me that my little brother grew up to be such an incredible man. I often wonder what he is doing, where is he at, and is he having fun? My little brother is only about a foot taller than I am, and could quite effectively kick my tail, so I would not dare pick on him like I did when we were kids. We had our fair share of disagreements, but I was the only one that could pick on him. As an adult it is funny what you remember, Dave was in high school I think and my dad hit his head on the cupboard and he slammed the door and then threw a roll of paper towels, my Brother said "Teach that cupboard a lesson I am sure it won't hit you again" or something like that. From that point on I saw Dave in a different way like he just grew up in that moment. I am always waiting to here that my Mom or Dad received an Email from him.
