My sister vet, Alicia

Sister Veterans

I wanted to thank my sister, Alicia, for being a veteran, and paving the way for me. She is the only reason I serve, and has been my rock throughout everything. Alicia served in the Iowa National Guard for eight years,and deployed to Kosovo 2005-2006. Her stregnth and guidance have made me the soldier that I am today, a veteran as well. Alicia, you are my sister, but my best friend, and I hope you truly understand what your service to this country is not forgotten. But to me, your service as a sister, guiding me through my career and deployment has been the most endearing thing anyone has ever done. I love you! (Picture 1: Alicia, Picture 2: Me)

I am honored to know you both and thank you for your past/current service in the Guard. Through all the trials and tribulations of service, you have both grown in so many ways!
