'So proud of that little girl'
This is my niece, PFC, Brandi Covington. She joined the army in November of 2006 and she has been in Iraq since June. She is 19 and she is my family's hero! My family is so proud of that little girl. The cat is that it is a stray that hangs out there and she has named the cat "Spotswood" and she plays with the cat and feeds it, which Brandi would do with any stray cat she has ever found!
