This is my hero, SPC Robert Racioppa. He is currently serving in Iraq on a 15-18 month deployment. Three days after he deployed, we found out we were expecting our first baby. And this is the proud father-to-be with our first ultrasound. I miss him greatly and wish all our troops a safe homecoming. Thanks for all you do to protect our freedom!
