'Such a brave man'

My husband Shawn Efaw is currently serving in Iraq. He is a Cavalry Scout with the 1st and 40th CAV out of Ft. Richardson, Alaska. He has been serving in Iraq since last October. We have a son, Gunner, who will be turning a year old next month. He left when he was a week old. I am so fortunate to have such a brave man in my life. We cant wait until he comes home to us!! I also want to honor all the other men and women serving out country no matter where they are! Thank you to all of them!
