Brothers in arms
These boys are our beloved grandsons, whom we adore. We pray daily for all those who serve our country. God bless America.
Enclosed is a photo of two brothers serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq after not seeing each other for over a year. It was a surprise visit after Nathanael was able to visit little brother Joshua's camp. They are the only sons of Chaplain Jeffery Slosson (U.S.A. Retired) and wife Kim of Colorado Springs, CO. Spc. Joshua (left) is a forward observer. He received a Purple Heart when injured by an enemy grenade. He is 19 years old and is airborne. PV2 Nathanael (right) is 22 years old. He is an Infantry Master Gunner and is qualified in special weapons.
