'Happy 22nd Birthday'
Jeff Hutchinson's family and friends want to wish him a Happy Birthday. He is turning 22 on March 2. Currently, he is in Iraq serving his 15 month tour (he is working on one of the vehicles radios in this picture).
We all are so proud of him and can't wait to see him late this summer for his R&R. Stay safe and know we love and miss ya.
