Sealed with a kiss
This is a photo of my husband, CPT James Mitchell, our 2-year-old daughter Sarah, and myself when he returned home from Iraq after a 16 month deployment with 4th Battalion, 11th Field Artillery of the 172d Stryker Brigade Combat Team from Alaska. The brigade was extended at the last minute for four months and moved from the Mosul area to Baghdad to help stop the sectarian violence.
