'My baby brother'
This is my brother, Sgt. William Crawford with the 10th Mountain Division, stationed at Fort Drum, NY. He has 2 tours to Iraq, one of which he just returned in April 07. He will be returning to Iraq for the 3rd time in Nov.07. He was stationed in Schweinfurt, Germany for 3 years before returning to the states.
When he returned home in April, we surprised our Mom and his Mother in law on Mother's Day. I also surprised him with a Welcome Home Party that weekend. He is my baby brother, and he is also my HERO.
