My prayers are with your brother as well, D!J!X!

I meant to say that in my reply last night and obviously forgot. Hopefully
his deployment will be up when it's supposed to be, which is not always the
case in this mess. My sister-in-law was over there and was told her
deployment had been extended something like 4 days before she was to return
home. And they can't figure out why morale is pretty low. I pray for and
admire our soldiers while cursing our politicians. Okay. Rant over.
