Backing him up
This a photo of my brother Frankie a few hours before he left for Iraq, surrounded by his mom, sisters, brother, wife and sister-in-law. He left in the beginning of Sept 07 and wont be returning until the end of 2008. He is a Staff Sgt in the US Army and is stationed at Fort Drum. As you can tell by the shirts he has alot of support back home here in NY. We all love him and miss him very much and can not wait for his safe return.
