'Wanted to share our pride'
My brother is on his second tour in Iraq. I just received this picture from him. He said he is standing on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. Our family is so thankful each and every day that he is doing okay. We are counting down the days until he returns to the United States. We are so proud of him and wanted to share our pride with the country.
