'My big brother'

My Brother, Scott E. Smith, is working with the team that is responsible for that 5 million dollar budget. I'm not exactly sure what it is that he does other than budget/money/accounting for the Air Force. Anyhow, he left for Iraq 6/5/07 and on 7/9/07 he became a Grandpa. My big brother, a Grandpa. (Not to mention, make our young parents Great Grandparents). Thanks to the internet, like others with memories to share, pictures were able to be sent so that he could enjoy the moment the best he could. We all miss him and love him. Thanks for everything.
